Portpatrick harbour's new ownership scheme
A new community ownership scheme is being launched in Portpatrick.
Residents of the Galloway village are being asked to buy a stake in the local harbour.
Organisers hope the "community benefit share offer" will raise £75,000 to secure the harbour's future.
The facility is currently owned by an investment company, based in the Channel Islands, but locals behind the buy-out say it needs urgent maintenance and modernisation.
