The Scottish Government have introduced a new consultation on short-term lets.

Announced by First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, at last weekend’s SNP conference, the consultation runs until 19 July and can be accessed here: https://consult.gov.scot/housing-services-policy-unit/short-term-lets/

The Scottish Government’s Housing Minister Kevin Stewart has also confirmed that the government will be conducting further research to explore the direct effects of short-term lets on communities, neighbourhoods and housing supply across Scotland.

Entries for the Skye Half Marathon have now sold out.

The race, which is set to take place on Saturday 8 June, saw a new race record set last year by winner, Cameron Milne.  

 

 

 

 

Another phase of slope stabilisation works is planned for Stromeferry.

The 2018 annual inspection report highlighted areas for the Council to consider and plan future works. These works are currently being designed and have been programmed for September and October 2019. The works will require night time closures and daytime convoys.

The nightly closures, from 10pm to 7am, will start on the 9th September and continue until the 8th of November. There will be one weekend closure from Friday night until Monday morning, over the weekend of the 21st /22nd September.
