On 15th January 2018 groups and individuals gathered at the Council Offices in Portree for the first Tourism Infrastructure Dynamic Workshop to hear of projects that have been proposed to improve tourism infrastructure, manage visitor expectations and to ensure that the impact of tourism in Skye and Raasay considers the communities where local people live and work.

All of us at SkyeConnect wish you all the very best for 2018 and we once again look forward to a good year for tourism both for our visitors and our residents.

SkyeConnect is delighted to announce the appointment of Alistair Danter as our Project Manager and will take up his role in December 2017.
