The vision for a new 70-home housing development on a former Lochaber primary school site is to be revealed to people living in the area next week.
And many of the proposed new houses and flats on the site of Lochyside RC Primary School, near Fort William, will enjoy views of Ben Nevis.
The school closed on Wednesday as the pupils are moving to the new £16million Caol joint school complex next week.
Artist’s impressions and information on the joint Highland Council and Lochaber Housing Association (LHA) scheme will go on show at Caol Community Centre for two weeks from Monday.
A drop-in session on the project, at which members of the design team will be on hand to discuss the proposal, will also be held at the old school on Thursday September 29 from 2pm to 7.30pm.
There will then be a period of four weeks during which residents can submit their comments in writing.
Bracewell Stirling Consulting, of Inverness, will be conducting the pre-planning application consultation on behalf of the council and LHA.
Information produced by the firm of chartered architects for the event says the housing mix would be set by the need reflected in the housing waiting lists.
It points out that the draft proposal on show could accommodate a wide range of houses and flats, from one-bedroom through to four-bedroom units.
It also states that pedestrian links would be retained and enhanced and road designs were intended to encourage motorists to drive at lower speeds, with a meandering road layout and features to avoid the creation of a “rat run”.
And the homes are to be grouped around focal points to “provide environmental interest and a sense of health and well-being”.
The density of the development on the four-acre site has been designed to match the surrounding settlements.
Caol Community Council chairwoman Jane Young is urging as many local people as possible to attend the consultation events.
She said: “I would encourage residents to go along.
“This is the pre-application stage. The plans have not been submitted yet so this is when people can go along and give their opinions before the plans are finalised.
“This is when we can make a difference.”
