It’s Small Business Saturday UK today and Shona Robison and I visited the Fire Surround Centres in Dundee this week to remind people how important it is to support our independent shops.

We have so much choice now in where and how we can shop and small businesses sometimes struggle to be noticed in amongst the bigger names.

This is the fourth year of the campaign to remind people to back their unique local small businesses, not only on the 3rd December, but on the other 364 days of the year.

Happy to raise awareness for Keep Scotland Beautiful's campaign to get people to take litter home and not throw it onto our roadsides from cars.

Scotland is a hugely attractive destination to visitors from all over the world, but litter all over our roads and beauty spots is not.

The Scottish Government has secured key commitments for Scotland over the expansion of Heathrow Airport.

It will bring a range of benefits that will help to grow passenger numbers and offer more flights, more choice and more visitors to Scotland.

The Scottish Government has backed a third runway at Heathrow saying it will bring thousands of new jobs and more flights north of the border. Ministers say airports...
