The Convener of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has paid tribute to former Councillor, Rev Roderick M Mackinnon, who passed away last weekend.
Rev Mackinnon, who hailed from Bunavoneadar, Harris, was elected to represent the new Lochboisdale Ward from 1975 to 1981 and a former Chairman of the Social Work Committee. He was the Church of Scotland Minister in South Uist at that time.
Convener, Norman A Macdonald, said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and his friends. ”
The Comhairle flag in Stornoway is flying at half-mast.
