New toilets at the Old Man of Storr on Skye are due to be handed over from contractors to Highland Council on Wednesday May 19.
More parking, services for motor homes and improvements to the path up to the Storr are also being provided as part of a project funded by The Highland Council and the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund.
The funding is targeted at projects that improve the visitor experience in rural parts of Scotland that have faced pressure following a significant increase in visitor numbers.
A private borehole water supply has been used for the toilets. The connection date for power was originally March 18, however, this date was moved by the suppliers to April 23. There is now a live supply, but a delay to the power connection meant the council was unable to complete final testing.
But this work should be completed in time for the handover.
