A cheque from Rabbie's Trailburners to Portree and Braes Community Trust has enabled the trust to purchase a number of picnic tables and benches.

The cheque handover took place today (Thursday 22 February) at Bayfield Carpark.

The benches, locally made by Bill Milller, provide a welcome opportunity to sit and take in the views.  

Dot Urquhart of Portree and Braes Communtiy Trust told The Skye Times: "The Trust has worked on cleaning and tidying up the area and we were able to purchase a number of picnic tables and benches by the giving of a sizeable donation from the Rabbie's Trailburners. 

"They have a Green Team and every year they try to off set their carbon emissions by making donations to the communities they visit. 

"I would love to give them recognition for their kind donation to our community and also for the fact that some of the team will be here over a few days for path mending on the island."
