Dunvegan Castle and Gardens closed its gates earlier this month.

The attraction will open again at Easter 2018.  

The team stated that they are looking forward to launching some new attractions, facilities and exhibitions, which they will be working on this winter.  

A new programme, known as Co-Innovate, is heading for Skye.

The new programme is an Interreg EU funded programme designed to assist small to medium enterprises and community groups to become more sustainable.

Businesses that are eligible include SMEs that have a tradable service or product that is tradable out with their immediate geography. This stipulation prevents displacement of local businesses like plumbers, hairdressers etc being included, but most other businesses are eligible.

The programme aims to promote collaboration across borders and will use the academic expertise of universities to facilitate the innovation projects at the latter stages of the programme. There is significant funding and resource available to businesses from stage 3 onwards.

The first Skye workshop will be held at the Aros Centre in Portree on Thursday 30 November at 10am until 1pm.  

Local businesses are welcome to attend and should contact Donald Murray on 0300 0134 781 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  More information can be found here.
