An economic policy document for the Western Isles has been launched by the Scottish National Party (SNP).
The SNP want to boost the Western Isles' economy
SNP spokesman for enterprise Jim Mather said the paper made the party's key commitments to the islands.
Mr Mather said the time was right for "some positive ideas" for May's Holyrood election.
The policy includes changes to tariffs on ferry routes, reducing business rates and ensuring a new Gaelic digital channel brings jobs to the islands.
Mr Mather said independence would make Scotland as successful as other small countries in Europe.
He said: "For the Western Isles that would mean over 1,000 more jobs and an economic boost over the next decade worth £2,800 for each and every person in the Western Isles."
