Full list of Stornoway Trust candidates and proposers


A large number of islanders have thrown their hats into the ring for the Stornoway Trust election.

Some 22 candidates are fighting for just five seats at the community landlord.

The election will be held on Tuesday 27 March.

People who are 16 years or over, on the electoral roll and living within the trust area are entitled to vote.

The ballot is being overseen by the Electoral Reform Services.

Nearly half the population of the Western Isles population live on the estate which stretches between North Tolsta, Newmarket, Point and part of North Lochs.

It also covers Stornoway, making it the only community landlord with a sizeable town under its wings.

Around 10,500 ballot slips being posted out shortly should be returned by noon on election day.

A ballot box will be available in the estate office in Stornoway town centre between 8am and 8pm on 27 March.

The count takes place in Stornoway Town Hall later that evening.
