Broadford Co-op Car park will be closed all day on Tuesday 26 March.

Organisers have said this will allow them to scarify and resurface the access and area directly next to the front of the shop.

On Wednesday 27, Thursday 28 and Friday 29, the car park will partially closed to allow resurfacing of the rest of the area.  Limited parking will be available on the resurfaced areas.  


Concerns have been raised over dangers to travellers posed by sharp tree branches beside the road in Skeabost.

Local artist, Ian Williams, photographed the trees when they were originally chopped back in December.  

Ian commented to Skye Times Online: "This was not a trimming exercise, this was wholesale criminal damage, corporate vandalism and, in some cases, trees that had age were ravaged and shredded to lethal, knife-sharp shards.

"The remaining spikes could cause serious injury or worse to an unsuspecting cyclist who falls off his or her cycle.

After a 2.5 hour tow, a local fishing vessel was transported to safety.

The fishing vessel had suffered mechanical failure approximately 13 miles north of Portree.

Portree RNLI launched to assist the vessel yesterday (Tuesday 19 March).  

The lifeboat transported the vessel safely to Portree pier.
