A proposal to attract more yachts to the isles of Harris and Scalpay has taken a step forward.

The team behind a £1.3m project to install new pontoons at Tarbert on Harris and Scalpay have applied for funding from several organisations.

These include Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.

The new facilities could be in place by the end of next year.
