A further funding commitment is being sought to allow £3.1m plans for a major art gallery project in Kirkcudbright to proceed.

The scheme would see the town hall converted to house "nationally significant" collections.

The Kirkcudbright Common Good Fund is being asked to agree to support the project with up to £200,000.

The money would allow the creation of a second floor gallery to host a hoard of Viking treasure found in the region.
