A sign, forming part of the Skye Ecomuseum, has gone missing.

The sign was installed in Digg 10 years ago and is thought to have gone missing in the past few days.

Local police Tweeted: "Someone is trying to #Digg a big hole for themselves and they don't know what's in #Storr for them when we catch them for stealing this community maintained sign. It's not until it's #Duntulm that they know how it feels. If you know where it's gone all we need is a call to 101."

Staffin Community Trust posted: "The panel was one of more than a dozen across Staffin which highlight popular walks and locations within the ecomuseum, also known as Ceumannan. Whoever has removed would have had to have gone a lot of effort as it was screwed on to a frame.

"The Staffin Community Trust is obviously disappointed at the loss of this panel, and would ask for it to be returned.

"The trust will be delivering a major investment in the ecomuseum’s interpretation later this year which includes new interpretation panels across Staffin, gateway structures and a central orientation point. A viewing platform and new car park, plus footpaths, is also part of the development.
"SCT obviously does not want this to happen again as it is a community project and there is no budget to replace interpretation which is removed or stolen."
