The second group of refugee families fleeing war-torn Syria will be resettled in a Lochaber village in the New Year.
Kinlochleven has been identified as the best place available for housing, schooling, health support and language interpretation services.
In the past year, the first group of five Syrian families were resettled in Alness – a move which has been viewed widely as a success.
And the Lochaber village is the latest destination in the Highlands to be announced for the resettling of up to 30 refugee families from Syria in the coming months.
On Monday, Kinlochleven residents, parents and community group representatives can attend a community engagement event in the village which will be hosted by Highland Council.
The event will explore the Syrian refugee crisis and how the region is responding and will consider opportunities for community support for those resettling in the region. It will take place in Kinlochleven High School at 7.30pm.
Council chiefs are working with the local authorities’ organisation Cosla and others to prepare for the new arrivals.
Regular meetings on the issue have involved NHS Highland officials, the police, charities and the pensions department focussing on accomm-odation, employment, education and health.
Last week council leader Margaret Davidson said: “We’ve already welcomed five families into our region and we’re committed to playing our part in helping resettle more refugees from Syria.”
Elsewhere in the north, six Syrian refugee families have landed in the Western Isles and 12 other families have settled at Rothesay on Bute.
It emerged in October that a baby was born to the first Syrian refugees to be sent to the Outer Hebrides just weeks after they arrived.
It was known that her mother was pregnant before arriving on Lewis.
A UK-wide programme is committed to resettling 20,000 of the most vulnerable Syrian refugees by 2020.
