Activists have launched a 10,000-postcard campaign demanding a resumption of traditional maternity services in Caithness.
It carries the simple message that 100 miles to have a baby at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness is “too far” for mums to travel.
Protest group, the Caithness Health Action Team, aims to deliver the cards to the Scottish Government.
Spokeswoman Nicola Sinclair, who was elected a Highland councillor last month off the back of the long-running campaign, said: “There’s space on the back for people to write their comments.
“Over the next few weeks, we’ll be taking these postcards all across the county, with a presence in supermarkets, high streets, community centres and events.
“Rather than have people post the cards themselves, we’ll ask people to complete them and we’ll deliver them in batches.
“Since the Scottish Government is obliged to log and reply to all written correspondence, we hope this campaign will keep Caithness healthcare at the front of their minds.”
