Tributes have been paid to a former Western Isles councillor, who has died aged 76.
Archie Campbell was a member for the Paible ward of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and served as chairman of the development committee.
Mr Campbell, who died on Friday, was educated at Bellahouston Academy in Glasgow before going on to the city’s Jordanhill College of Education in 1962 to gain his teaching qualifications.
He was elected to represent Paible in 1999, later serving the North Uist and Benbecula ward until his resignation in 2015.
Convener of the Comhairle Norman A Macdonald said: “Archie was a tremendous voice for his community, serving in distinguished roles on the Comhairle, most notably as chairman of development.
“He was a robust campaigner for both his community and for the islands and was also a director of Hebridean Housing Partnership. On a personal level, Archie was a gentleman in how he conducted himself and someone who was revered by his colleagues and friends.
“Our thoughts at this sad time are with Archie’s wife Ada, their children Eilidh, Sarah and Alasdair, and his many friends.”
The Comhairle flags at offices in Balivanich and Stornoway were flying at half-mast.
Before his council career Mr Campbell educated a generation of islanders, starting with a posting at Paible School in 1967. He later taught in Iochdar School.
In 1988 he moved to Sgoil Lionacleit, in Benbecula, which was the only six-year secondary in the Uists, serving as a principal teacher of guidance before retiring in 1997.
It is understood that Mr Campbell had not been in good health for a spell.
