An update has been released on the power cut planned for today (Thursday 6 December.)

The SSEN have temporarily isolated power supplies to properties in Springfield Road and Rosebank Terrace in order to safely carry out planned, essential maintenance.

This will last until around 3pm today.

The maintenance includes tree cutting as part of the SSEN's ongoing maintenance programme to keep overhead power lines clear from vegetation and improve the resilience of the network.

A spokesperson from Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) told Skye Times Online: "We would like to thank our customers for their patience as we work to safely carry out essential maintenance work near Springfield Road and Rosebank Terrace today. Tree cutting forms part of our ongoing maintenance programme to keep our overhead power lines clear from trees and other vegetation to help ensure we deliver a safe and reliable supply of electricity to our customers."
