Bute school pupils delved into the world of architecture on Friday at Rothesay Pavilion, with some guidance from a former Academy pupil.

Nicola McLachlan, who attended Rothesay Academy, is currently studying architecture at university and lent a hand on Friday, alongside Tom Warren from Collective Architecture - the company behind the design of the Old Courthouse in Rothesay.

Along with teachers Mr Alan Arneil and Mrs Jane Catlin, the pupils designed illuminated models of the Cabbies’ Rest using craft materials.
