Deliveries of locally-produced milk are being offered to residents of the Isle of Lewis and neighbouring Harris for the first time in six years.

The product, produced by family-run, Bragar-based Brogaidh's Dairy is an alternative to supermarket-bought milk.

The dairy was started by Gordon Mackay, and his family, after he left the North Sea oil and gas industry.

Costing about £1m to set up, the dairy in Lewis involves a herd of more than 40 Guernsey and Ayrshire cows.
