Well, where to start ! Unfortunately our car died yet again at the hill entrance to Kyle Co-op on Friday in atrocious weather conditions. So, many thanks to young Danny from the Co-op Staff and to Keith from SSE and of course to Donny from Murchisons Garage and the lovely lass from the Taxi.

Sun at last! The Village is gearing up for the start of the Tourist Season as any remaining debris from the recent storms is cleared from the roads and foreshore areas. The flagpole at the Kings Arms Hotel lost several feet of its height during 'Dennis' but apart from that there doesn't appear to have been any significant damage to the Village.

Proposed Kyleakin - Broadford Cycle Path
There will be an informal Public Meeting about the progress of this exciting off-road Project, delivered by Broadford & Strath Community Company, on Thursday, 5th March at Kyleakin Village Hall. Time: 6.30pm for 7.00pm
This will give local residents a chance to view the optimal routes to take the Cycle Path at least as far as the Armadale turn off. There will be refreshments available.
In 2012 KEG had started this Project but the main problems with putting the route in on the north side were getting past the Quarry due to a near vertical drop into a large pool of water that undercuts the road slightly at one point. The optimal route at that time was to go straight up the south side of the A87.
Whichever route is finally chosen, it must meet the 'Abilities for All' criteria.
You can find out more by going to the 'Skye Cycle Way' page on Facebook.
