New information screens are about to light up the lives of Kintyre visitors and locals alike.

Campbeltown-based Keeping it local CIC (community interest company) is introducing the screens up and down the peninsula, including Tarbert and on the Isle of Gigha.

A spokesperson for the community interest company said: ‘With the support of fantastic businesses all over we are able to provide up-to-date information on events, news, travel and destination areas to visit all around the area at the touch of a button.

‘The work we do is also supported by advertising on our screens while promoting your own business offerings.’

The boards should be up and running by April, all being well.

The aim of Keeping it local CIC is to support businesses, trades, services and events by collating information and bringing all that Kintyre has to offer under one roof – a one-stop-shop for the consumer and businesses.

The Tarbert information boards are due to be located at One Fyne Deli and at The Gather restaurant.
