Bute will join the rest of the UK in falling silent for one minute at 12 noon today (Friday) to remember the victims of last week’s terror attack in Tunisia.

Flags have been taken down from the pier in Kilchattan Bay as a mark of respect, while the Union flag at the quay has been lowered to half mast, as shown in the picture above.

Thirty of the 38 people killed in the beach attack in the resort of Sousse on June 26 were British, four of them Scots - Jim and Ann McQuire, from Cumbernauld, and Billy and Lisa Graham, from Bankfoot near Perth.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will observe the silence during a visit to the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.
