A community trust on Skye has received over £88,000 to enable the creation of extra parking spaces.

Portree and Braes Community Trust on Skye were awarded £88,390 in order to purchase the tennis courts at Bayfield for the purpose of turning them into extra parking spaces.

The Community Trust development is one of six projects in the Highlands to receive funding from the Scottish Land Fund.

Duncan Brown, Chair, Portree and Braes Trust, Bayfield Development Group, said: "We are absolutely delighted that the Scottish Land Fund has committed to support the Trust.

"Owning the land and generating a secure, regular income through its operation as a car and motorhome parking facility will allow the trust to reinvest into other community identified projects for the foreseeable future.

"We see this development as a vital first step in realising some long standing ambitions held by the community of Portree and Braes."
