The sound of popping corks filled the autumn air at one Portree care home, as the staff and Residents of HC-One's Home Farm helped Mrs Mary MacPherson celebrate her 103rd birthday in style.

Mary, who was originally a native to the Isle of Skye, spent her working life as a District Nurse.

To celebrate her special day, Mary joined her fellow Resident Mary McNeil in planting bulbs for the home's sensory garden, before being presented with a card made from pressed flowers from the garden and enjoying a meal out with her family at Uig Hotel.

HC-One Home Farm Home Manager, Linda Baillie said: "We are all very fond of Mary and it was lovely to see her enjoying such a wonderful day celebrating with her friends and family."
