Some people have asked to know why each of the places was nominated so we’ve picked some random nominations to give you a flavour of why nominators want to see each community win.

» Bowmore: Whisky. The Ileach. The Round Church. Lovely Lochindaal’. ‘The McTaggart Pool and the wildlife on the loch’.
» Bute: ‘The island is really one community with a great sense of belonging’.
» Campbeltown: ‘Because all it needs is people to believe in it’.
» Colintraive and Glendaruel: ‘Real ambition in a small and united community’.
» Dunoon: ‘Too important a place to be allowed to run through the fingers.’
