Police cars in Stornoway are displaying specially-designed stickers commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Iolaire Disaster.
The stickers, designed by local firm Graphite Signs, allows local officers to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the disaster.
The HMS Iolaire foundered on rocks at Holm, just a short distance from the entrance to Stornoway Harbour in the early hours of January 1, 1919.
The ship was carrying men who had fought in World War I back to the Western Isles. More than 200 people died in the disaster.
Chief Inspector Ian Graham, area commander for the Western Isles, said: “The Iolaire Disaster is a hugely significant event in the history of the Western Isles and we are proud to be able to make this small act of remembrance for all those affected by the tragedy a century ago.
“I would like to thank Graphite Signs for producing the stickers, Poppy Scotland for their support of this initiative and Constable Richard Henderson for arranging this on behalf of Police Scotland.”
A number of events and projects are taking place to commemorate the Iolaire tragedy.
As part of the Dìleab (Legacy) project, all schools in the Western Isles are being gifted a signed copy of a book, The Darkest Hour, which is the most comprehensive account to date of the disaster.
The book was written by Malcolm Macdonald, Chairman of Stornoway Historical Society, and the late Donald John MacLeod.
A special shinty match is also being played on New Year’s Day between Camanachd Leodhais and Kinlochshiel.
