A Royal National Mod gold medallist has been appointed as the new permanent head teacher of Inverness Gaelic school, Bun-sgoil Ghaidhlig Inbhir Nis.

Barbara Smith has previously been acting head at the Gaelic Primary School in Sleat on Skye.

She currently teaches at the island's Broadford Primary School and will take up her new post in August.

For about five years, Highland Council has had difficulties filling the head teacher role.

When the school opened in 2007, it was the first purpose-built Gaelic-medium school in Scotland.
