Cabinet ministers will listen to the people when they hold their summer meetings outside of the Scottish capital, First Minister Alex Salmond said.
For the fifth summer in a row, members of the Scottish cabinet are taking their discussions out of Edinburgh.
This year they will travel to Skye and Orkney, as well as to Renfrew.
As well as having their regular formal meetings, cabinet members will also take part in public meetings in each of the three venues, with people able to come along and question them on any aspect of the Scottish Government's work.
More than 4000 people have taken part in such events over the past four years, when the Scottish cabinet has visited places including Inverness, Pitlochry, the Isle of Bute, Stirling and Stranraer.
Speaking about this year's meetings Mr Salmond said: "From the urban heartland of the central belt to two of our more remote communities, we will be listening to people across Scotland about what's important to them.
"I am determined that we will continue to work with the people of Scotland to deliver the economic growth and fairer society we all quite rightly expect. These summer cabinets are an important part of building that future and I hope as many people as possible join us."
The First Minister said the summer cabinet meetings in towns across Scotland had been "among the most successful and enjoyable events undertaken by the Scottish Government".
He added: "They offer the opportunity to meet hundreds of people from a wide range of backgrounds and communities and hear their views on important issues.
"We are all looking forward to another exciting and valuable round of visits during this year's parliamentary recess.
"This year our ministerial team will be visiting Skye, Renfrew and Orkney, where we will be talking and listening to local people about the issues that matter most."
