The design of a proposed visitor centre dedicated to the history, wildlife and geology of St Kilda has been unveiled.
The building is to be constructed at a cliff-top site at Mangersta in Uig on Lewis - about 41 miles (66km) east of the remote archipelago.
Building on St Kilda's main island, Hirta, was ruled out because bad weather can restrict access to the small group of isles.
St Kilda is also a protected Unesco World Heritage site.
Islanders abandoned the archipelago in 1930, and today Hirta is only occupied for a few months of the year by National Trust for Scotland staff and volunteers, scientists and Ministry of Defence contractors who operate a rocket testing radar.
