A Sabhal Mor Ostaig tutor has been awarded an MBE as part of the Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Ms Christine Mary Primrose, originally from Carloway, received recognition for services to Gaelic Music to Culture and to Education in Scotland and Internationally.

Ms Primrose told The Skye Times: "I am delighted to be given this award.  I feel it recognises the great tradition of Gaelic song, the tradition bearers of the past and those  who  are still  keeping it alive.  It shows the strength of the tradition and how it still expresses emotions that resonate today.”
