Two men are to stand trial in February charged with the murder of Western Isles teenager Liam Aitchison.

Johnathan MacKinnon, 22, of Elgin, and Stefan Millar, 21, of Inverness, appeared for a preliminary hearing at the High Court in Glasgow.

The pair were accused of killing 16-year-old Liam, from South Uist, at a property in the Steinish area of Lewis on 23 November last year.

The trial is expected to last for about three weeks.

A further preliminary hearing will take place in January.
