Carbost's new playpark was officially opened at the weekend by Kate Forbes MSP.

Saturday 9 June saw the new playpark's first day of use.

Kate Forbes helped the parents behind the bid for the new park to secure £50,000 funding from the SUEZ Communities Trust Ltd, on top of the group's existing sterling fundraising.

The Skye MSP visited the group at the old swing park last summer, and heard from local mums and families as they explained the clear need for new play facilities for youngsters in the community.
