The skye times mobile

As we announced on social media earlier in the week, it's no longer possible for us to keep The Skye Times On-line running.

This is a great disappointment to us all, after launching the service in early 2016.

It's happened despite all the great efforts of staff involved in the service, based both on Skye and in Stornoway. 

Thank you very much to our followers, readers, advertisers and supporters - quite a few of whom have expressed their disappointment on Facebook and Twitter.

The Facebook Page and Twitter account will remain in existence to serve The Skye Magazine.

Worried about all those calories consumed in a couch-potato and turkey Christmas…why not burn them away in one go with a spot of New Year celebration coasteering.

Start the New Year by jumping, swimming and diving into the welcoming embrace of the ocean…meeting at 10am in Portree on Thursday January 2.

This is the sixth year that Skye Adventure have given people the chance to work off their Christmas and New Year food extravaganza in this way.

Skye's own tourism management organisation has responded firmly to Highland Council's decision to progress with further work on the Transient Visitor Levy, the so-called Tourist Tax.

SkyeConnect repeated its opposition to any tax that focussed solely on accommodation providers - and which did not create a revenue stream to come back to assist tourism-related projects on Skye itself.

It states: “The Board of SkyeConnect has contributed to both the Scottish Government and Highland Council consultations and we acknowledge the amount of work that Highland Council officers have done in collecting the data and analysing the responses.
