Around 50 people attended the Mowi open day on November 9.

The event, which ran from 10am until 1pm, attracted a broad mix of local people keen to understand more about the Feed Mill.

Over 40 people took the opportunity to take a tour of the Feed Mill, with the minibus doing three trips to the factory from Kyleakin Connections.

Speaking about the event, Claes Jonermark, operations director, Mowi Feed, said: “We were delighted to meet so many people on Saturday.

£99,483 of funding is set to go to Bayfield Car Park.

The project, coming from the the Highland Council, Portree & Braes Community Trust and the Portree Tennis and Squash club, aims to provide enhanced parking facilities and alleviate pressure on existing infrastructure.

The funding comes from a £2.3 million investment to benefit town centres across the Highlands.

The Isle of Skye will have its very own flag in March 2020.

A competition is now underway to design the flag, which will be recognised by the court of Lord Lyon – the body responsible for recording and protecting all heraldry, flags and national symbols in Scotland. 

The West Highland Free Press, Highland Council ward members and tourism body SkyeConnect petitioned the court with the idea for a flag.

Philip Tibbetts, Honorary Vexillologist with the Court of the Lord Lyon, has visited schools on the island to deliver a series of workshops and presentations detailing his interest in flags, and discussing the themes which could potentially inspire a flag for Skye.
