Highland Council has approved plans for the Isle of Raasay's first whisky distillery.

R&B Distillers has proposed turning Borodale House, a derelict Victorian hotel, into a distillery and visitor centre.

The building work is scheduled to begin in April this year and the production of whisky next year.

The distillery would be one of the largest employers on an island with a population of about 170 people.
