A welcome for local MSP Alasdair Allan from the staff at the new Island Kitchen café at Stornoway airport.

Alasdair was en route to Edinburgh and also had a chance to meet with the national management of the national catering company involved, Elior.

A company spokesman said the "Island Kitchens" at the airports in Stornoway, Kirkwall and Benebecula "are a tremendous success for ourselves and our
client HIAL."

There was a special buffet available to guests and visitors today (Tuesday December 10th) with elements of local produce from all the islands where the "Island Kitchens" brand has airport cafés. 

The business has created six jobs in Kirkwall; five in Stornoway and four in Benbecula.
