A community review of Tourism Infrastructural projects on the Isles of Skye and Raasay will be held early in 2018.

The workshop aims to shape and influence the Scottish government Task Force on Tourism Infrastructure on the islands.

Individuals, businesses and community organisations are welcome to attend the workshop, which will take place at Tigh na Sgire, Portree on Monday 15 January 2018 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.  

Scottish Trad-rock band, Mànran, are heading to Portree next month.

The tour will showcase the new single "When You Go."  Penned by the band’s guitarist, Craig Irving, the song also features Craig on lead vocals.

Better known for their Gaelic material, "When You Go" is also the first single in English to be released by Mànran and is the first offering in a range of new material, due to be showcased over their upcoming Winter Tour dates in Scotland.

As well as bringing in the New Year on this year’s BBC Alba "Cèilidh na Bliadhn’ Ùire," Scottish audiences can catch Mànran live in Portree on January 1 2018 at Portree Community Centre at 8pm.
