While house building continues to dominate local planning applications here is something unusual, but is it the very first for Skye?

Waternish based Skyedesigns are the agent for this eco-friendly earth sheltered house which is planned for Glendale.

The applicants are Mr and Mrrs Neil Maclean and if given the go ahead the new house will be built on land - or should that be built under land - some 60 metres south west of Fon Tobar at Lower Milovaig.
