Highland Council to turn off street lights in Lochaber
Every second street light will be switched off in parts of Lochaber in a trial to determine how much a council could save on energy costs.
Lights will also be dimmed during the project, which will run from July until early December.
The trial will be held in parts of Fort William, Banavie, Strontian and Kinlochleven.
Highland Council said it followed public responses to a consultation on how the authority could save money.
Brian Murphy, vice chairman of the council's Tec services committee, said: "As part of our budget consultation we asked the question - can we reduce our street lighting?
"The majority of responses we received suggested we look at ways to cut down both the length of time street lights were in operation and the number of lights in use."
Community councils, the police and members of the public will be asked to provide feedback on the trial.
