"Significant investment" will be required to secure the future of the Portree Community Centre.

The Lochalsh and Skye Housing Association, PBCT, local Councillors, HIE and the Portree Community Centre Committee (PCCC) alongside representatives from Portree Nursery and Portree Primary have held a series of meetings to discuss the future of the Community Centre and the Camanachd Square/Park Road area. 

Since 2018 the PCCC has been working to improve the standards of the building with a view to re-opening.

The Committee say that a recent survey has highlighted that significant investment will now be required to secure the future of the building.  They stated: "An architect provided feedback stating that a re-build may be more cost efficient although a full condition report is required before further action can be taken.

"The benefits of the PCCC forming a subgroup under the umbrella of the PBCT are being discussed with the details of this arrangement to be confirmed.

"The Community Centre is currently closed with exception of access to Phil the Barber who continues to operate from the building as normal."
