People of all ages will be lacing up their trainers this weekend to take part in a virtual 5k, 10k, half marathon or full marathon challenge to raise funds for the music-based Eilidh’s Trust in memory of the young Barra piper who died in the 2017 Manchester Arena bombing.
Eating shellfish such as cockles, mussels, oysters or razor fish from these areas may pose a risk to human health and notices to warn the public and casual gatherers have been posted at various locations on the shore.
The conference also features the Best Scottish Shellfish competition
