The outreach exercise was launched in October as part of the Commission's work to find out how human rights are being experienced across the Highlands and Islands.

The Commission's lead officer for the Highlands, Luis Felipe Yanes, said: "We are gathering more evidence for our project on economic, social and cultural rights in the Highlands and Islands, looking at issues such as fuel poverty, digital poverty and problems accessing adequate decent food, clothing, housing and healthcare.

"We are listening carefully to different communities and due to the high level of engagement, we are extending our visits with new dates in Lochaber, Argyll and Bute, Ross and Sutherland."

The Commission is due to visit Lochinver and Ullapool tomorrow, Thursday, November 30, and Tongue on Friday, December 1. More information about the organisation and the visits can be found at: scottishhumanrights.com
