Packs of Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests will be distributed from several Highland locations next week – for the last time.

The Highland Council and NHS Highland have been working in partnership to increase the availability of tests throughout the Highlands.

Free packs of LFD tests have been made available to the public in several outdoor locations across the region.

Staff have also been present to give guidance on how to take the test.

The deployments have not been due to any particular outbreak in the areas visited.

After Thursday (April 14) the Highland Council and NHS Highland’s Community Testing Programme will no longer be providing free LFD tests to the general public.

In this final week, each collection point may close earlier than advertised if their allocation of test kits is handed out before the advertised closing time.

Packs of LFD tests for anyone without symptoms will be available to collect at the following locations:
