On a visit to Fraserburgh, First Minster Alex Salmond announced that a further £3m would be made available to the communities affected.

The Scottish government is to hold a cabinet meeting in Fraserburgh on Monday.

The official cabinet meeting will be held at the Fraserburgh Sports and Community Centre on Monday morning.

The tour has already seen discussions in Lerwick, Hawick and Campbeltown.
