A village on Skye could be named Village of the Year in a nationally televised competition.

Tarskavaig, along with two other Highland villages, is in the running to claim the title.  

The show will be hosted by Penelope Keith, who will judge entrants along with Alex Langlands, Juliet Sargeant and Patrick Grant.  

From stunning coastal fishing villages to hillside farming communities and from outlandish artist colonies to the most traditional chocolate box villages, Village of the Year 2017 with Penelope Keith will celebrate all that is great about our rural communities.

The 24 x 60 series, produced by Reef Television will air across both daytime and peak.

Penelope will preside over heats, semi-finals and final, with a panel of expert judges deciding which villages will progress through the rounds before revealing their winner, based on the following criteria: Appearance; History & Heritage; Village Events; Activities; and Visitor Experience.

They will award their chosen village with the accolade of Village of the Year and £10,000 to be used for a worthwhile community project.
