Work has started on the new Fairy Pools car park and toilet facilities.

The new car park will enable 130 parking spaces and will be built in two phases - enabling the facility to remain open to the public at all times.

The entire site is due to be completed early next year.

Kate Forbes MSP commented on this long-awaited congestion solution: “The most important people are local residents, whose lives have been disrupted by crazy parking on the side of the road and thoughtless littering. I hope that a brand new car park, toilets and amenities will resolve that.”

 

 Dogs, cattle, music, art - all of the above and more could be found at Dunvegan Show on Saturday 28 July.

The action-packed day had something for everyone, including archery, a spinning demonstration and lively music.

A highlight of the day was the many competitions, featuring artwork, photography and livestock to name just a few.

 

The Scottish Government is currently consulting on the scope of a deposit return scheme, to boost recycling and cut plastic waste – with the proposal being that customers would pay a deposit when they purchase a product, which would be refunded when the item is recycled. The scheme already operates in many other parts of Europe, Australia, the United States and Canada.

Kate Forbes MSP has urged people to get involved and give their views on the proposed bottle deposit return scheme. Ms. Forbes said: “A deposit return scheme has huge potential to help us tackle the scourge of plastic litter and waste on our landscape."
