First Minister Alex Salmond has faced calls for safety improvements at a loch where four anglers drowned.
Community Safety Minister Fergus Ewing will meet Argyll locals in light of the accident on Loch Awe, Mr Salmond told MSPs during First Minister's Questions.
William Carty, 47, and Craig Currie, 30, died after their boat sank in the loch as they made their way back from a pub in the early hours of Saturday. The search for Mr Carty's brother Steven, 42, and Thomas Douglas, 36, who were also on board, was called off after three days.
