Salmond meets residents of £5m Argyll housing estate

First Minister Alex Salmond has met the residents of a £5m affordable housing estate in Campbeltown, Argyll.

The event was part of his cabinet's summer tour of Scotland.

Funding for the project came from the Scottish government, Argyll and Bute Council and Argyll Community Housing Association (ACHA).

Mr Salmond said his government was "well on track" to meet its pledge to deliver 30,000 affordable homes over the lifetime of the parliament.

As part of their tour of the country, ministers have already met in Lerwick and Hawick, and next week they will meet in Fraserburgh.

Speaking ahead of the visit, Mr Salmond said the cabinet meetings away from Edinburgh were all about taking government directly to the people.
