People across the Highlands are being urged to keep diaries of their daily experiences during the coronavirus pandemic for a future archive collection.

The call has gone out from the Highland Archive Service which has temporarily closed its centres including its Inverness base in Bught Road.

"As you know, we are in the midst of a global pandemic and people's lives are changing like never before," it states in its latest newsletter.

"The Highland Archive Service is putting out a call for people living in the Highlands to keep diaries of their daily experiences and the impact on their family, work and life.

"Over the coming months we would love to add your diaries to our collections so they can form part of the Highlands' collective memory going forwards."

Staff with the archive service are working from home where they will remotely respond to enquiries and continue the family history research service.

They also plan to create digital resource packs for parents teaching from home, put together resources for older people and deliver live chats on social media.
