The 2019 Skye Festival kicks off August with a set of achingly atmospheric songs and wild dance tunes when trad/Americana duo Sorren MacLean and Hannah Fisher take to the stage.

The popular duo, who played at last year’s SEALL Festival of Small Halls, will present a mix of original and contemporary songs and turnes, blending vocal harmonies with bluegrass influenced fiddle. The evening will be opened with a set by award-winning Skye composer and singer-songwriter, Hector MacInnes. The event takes place Friday, August 2 at Sabhal Mòr Ostaig, An Talla Mhòr.

Local police will be holding a recruitment information evening at Portree High School next month.

The event is for anyone interested in the role of a Constable or volunteering as a Special Constable.

Participants will be given details about the application process by officers, as well as details of the various stages of the recruitment process.

Attendees will also be given an opportunity to test themselves with a mock exam, and will be provided with an input on interview preparation. Finally there will be a question and answer session.
