A six-year-old Rothesay Primary pupil has scooped one of the top prizes in an annual photography competition run by the Scottish Civic Trust.

Conor Bolton took first prize in the primary section of the 2014 ‘My Place’ photography competition with his image of the shelter at Bogany Point in Rothesay, with a CalMac ferry heading for Wemyss Bay in the background.

The competition, which is an annual open opportunity for young people of school age in Scotland, aims to give children a platform to express ideas, experiences and perspectives on the heritage, buildings and archaeology around them. Each entry is presented as part of the My Place exhibition at The Lighthouse, Scotland’s Centre for Design and Architecture, in Glasgow’s Mitchell Lane from 2pm on March 27 until 5pm on May 4.
