Collapsed airline Highland Airways' debts run to more than £3.2m, documents prepared by its administrators have shown.

The Inverness-based company's creditors are owed £1.13m, which includes a claim for more than £50,000 from Argyll and Bute Council.

Other debts include a £1.2m bank overdraft.

Highland Airways, which operated flights in Scotland and Wales, went into administration in March.

PricewaterhouseCoopers were called in to take over the running of the business.

The airline's collapse affected passenger flights to the Outer Hebrides, parts of Wales, newspaper deliveries and hospital appointments.
