A final call has been issued to budding photographers from the Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch constituency seeking to enter Kate Forbes MSP's photography competition.

Amateur snappers have the unique opportunity of having their work showcased at the Scottish Parliament in Ms Forbes' office – and anyone wanting to enter must do so by 12 noon on Monday 18 March.

Thus far, almost 100 entries have been received, including stunning images captured across the constituency including the Old Man of Storr on Skye, the River Spey in Badenoch, Glen Nevis in Lochaber, and the seafront in Cromarty in Ross-shire.

Kate Forbes MSP said: "When I first launched the competition last month, I genuinely had no idea how many people would enter.

"I have been bowled over not just by the quantity, but particularly by the quality of the entries.

"It simply demonstrates to me how fortunate I am to represent the most beautiful constituency in Scotland, and also shows how creative and talented Highlanders are.

"I will be shortlisting the finalists after the closing date of Monday 18 March, and I can already see that's going to be a very difficult job.

"There is still time for people of all ages and abilities in my constituency to enter, and I'm looking forward to showcasing some home-grown talent on the walls of my Holyrood office."
