Skate/bike ramps will be be installed in Portree next year.
The project was undertaken by the Portree and Braes Community Trust Outdoor Activities Subgroup after a desire for the ramps was identified. They stated: "This is the first project undertaken by this subgroup of the Trust, chosen after similar equipment was borrowed from the Lochaber area in July 2017 and was extremely popular and well used for the weeks that it was on site."
The group had raised around £3,500 thanks to local fundraising and generous support. They were also awarded £9,591.49 from Highland LEADER to help make the project possible.
The ramps are now ordered and it is hoped that they will be in place by July 2018. They will be based at the Red Pitch, Camanachd Square, Portree, but as they are transportable, may be available for use in other areas at Festival/Gala days.
