Curlers have been asked to give their views and ideas on a plan to build a new rink in the Highlands.
North Highland Curling Trust was launched in May to pursue the possibility of a new site following the closure of a rink in Brora in 2006.
The trust has commissioned consultants Solas Business Services to gauge the views of curlers in Easter Ross and Sutherland on the plan.
People have also been asked to complete a survey on the trust’s website.
Chairman Ian MacKay said the Brora rink was sadly missed.
He added: “We think the time is right to find out whether it’s possible to develop a new facility in the area but we need information from existing and potential curlers to know whether it’s a goer.
“This is a practical piece of research which will give us the information we need to make a decision about what to do next.”
