Highland Council has set out plans to replace one of Scotland's most remote schools.

Strontian Primary in Strontian in the north west Highlands was built in the mid-1970s and takes pupils from the Ardnamurchan and Morvern peninsulas.

Councillors will be asked a meeting next week to agree that the school be accommodated in new units at the village's Ardnamurchan High School.

The proposal would cost about £1.16m, council officers have said.

The 1970s building forms part of a wider complex, that includes the village hall.

Council officers said the local authority would work with the community to explore the future use and ownership of the hall.
