This week-end (Saturday 18 March) sees the launch of SkyeConnect, the island's Destination Management Organisation.

From 11am until 2.30pm there is an open invitation to the Aros Centre, Portree, where the event takes place as part of Scottish Tourism Week 2017.

The organisers say: "If you plan to attend no tickets are required but we would kindly ask you to complete the pro-forma at the registration table, and it would help if you could indicate if your business would like to become a member and help us shape the future of tourism in Skye. We look forward to welcoming."
