Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles have topped the list in Scotland for places which make the most of their heritage.
The results were revealed today following the publication of the new 2016 RSA Heritage Index, produced in collaboration with the Heritage Lottery Fund. The index measures which places are maximising their available heritage assets in terms of rates of volunteering and investment in heritage projects.
Orkney has this year displaced Dundee at the top of the list, and the Western Isles and Shetland have been placed third and fourth respectively. Argyll and Bute was ranked sixth and the Highlands made the top 10.
Analysis showed that there is a nationwide correlation between council areas with higher well-being, and areas with higher activity scores within the Heritage Index.
