Photographers in the Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch constituency could have their work on display in the Scottish Parliament, thanks to a new competition from a local MSP.

Kate Forbes has invited photographers of all ages and abilities to enter her competition, with the theme of "Made In The Highlands."

The MSP explained: “I am keen to encourage budding photographers of all ages and stages, and I thought this competition would provide one of them with a new platform.

It’s quite an accolade to say you’ve worked with the world’s biggest semi-submersible drilling rig – but that’s exactly what the team at Kishorn Port Limited (KPL) is able to tell you.

The Ocean GreatWhite, owned by Diamond Offshore, arrived in Loch Kishorn in January 2019, where she is currently being mobilised for drilling works in the North Sea.

Simon Russell, Director of Kishorn Port Ltd (KPL) and Leiths, revealed: “The Ocean GreatWhite came to Kishorn from Singapore via the Canary Islands. Before she arrived with us, she stayed in the waters near Ullapool so that she could undergo sea trials.  All the ferry passengers could see her and that sparked great interest in the rig!”

Two local design agencies joined forces on Thursday 14 February.

Marketing and design agency, West Coast Media, founded by Tim Davies and Blair Hunter, and graphic and website design agency, Pelican Design, owned and directed by Luke Slater, are now operating as one.
