The National Trust for Scotland has a manager living on its isle of Canna after previously managing the site from an office in Inverness.

Stewart Connor, 48, from Largs, moved to the island off the west Highland coast last week.

His arrival takes Canna's population to 20.

Before his appointment, Inverness-based staff would have had to make a 104-mile trip by road to Mallaig and then take a ferry to visit the isle.

Mr Connor said he was delighted to have landed the role.

He added: "The community on Canna is bursting with ideas and a large part of my job will be to work closely with them to look at how we can develop the island in the future.

"I've always had a strong interest in Scottish history and culture, and when I saw the job advertised I jumped at it."
