Scotland's only commercial-scale woolskin tannery has secured funding towards improvements to its business.

Skyeskyns Ltd based in Waternish in north west Skye is one of just two businesses of its kind in the UK.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) has announced investment of £33,360 in the family-run firm's construction of a new building.

HIE said the development would help to secure the future of 18 jobs and increase turnover by about a third.
