Bikers on Skye will soon not have to go the extra mile - in fact many miles - to get their machines MOT'd.

In the recent past motorcyclists have had to travel all the way to Lochcarron to get the essential test done or head even further to Inverness.

Now though after SGM Cars Ltd's Alan Souter has successful completed his motorcycle MOT course Kyle will be the place many two wheelers are expected to head for.

Alan said: "Just a wee heads up folks,I've now completed my motorcycle mot course,so hope fully by the end of February we will be offering bike mot's and repair at SGM CARS LTD in kyle of lochalsh,with late appointments till 9pm on a Wednesday and Thursday."
