A new campaign to encourage more people to take up sailing holidays in Scotland has been launched.

Sail Scotland's drive, Sailing to Success, has been supported by a £22,500 grant from the VisitScotland Growth Fund.

Campaign organisers estimate the sector has the potential to grow by an extra £1m.

Sailing to Success was unveiled by Tourism Minister Fergus Ewing at Inverness Marina.
