A local organisation has received recognition for their work in cleaning up Skye.

I Love Skye has won the Clean Up Hero award for their community clear up effort with Skinadin lay-by.  

Judges from Keep Scotland Beautiful noted that they were impressed by the community spirit that removed an estimated 5 tonnes of rubbish from the site.

Formed by local businessman, Matt Harrison, the I Love Skye campaign is proactively keeping Skye clean.

The prize of £250 vouchers for clean-up equipment will be invaluable for the group.
