P&BCT Board Members inspect the steps at Leasagary Bridge


It's taken longer than expected but improvement work is now expected to began soon around a popular Portree nature walk.

About a year Portree and Braes Community Trust made a commitment to repair the wooden steps at Leasagary Bridge nature walk however, due to issues relating to ownership, things have taken some time to sort out.

However the Trust have now said: "We are delighted to announce that the Trust has entered into a long term lease of the amenity ground south of the bridge, from Fearrann Eilean Iarmain.

"Remedial works in this area start next week. Some other commitments we made to repair and replace street furniture locally are also in hand."
