A major exhibition entitled Wild and Majestic: Romantic Visions of Scotland will examine how Scotland gained its reputation as a land of wilderness, heroism and history.

Gaelic language and culture feature throughout the exhibition, with the main narrative presented in both English and Gaelic.

The event will also feature a partnership on Gaelic content between National Museums Scotland and Sabhal Mòr Ostaig.  

Experts from Sabhal Mòr Ostaig have also assisted on the panel texts which will be presented in both English and Gaelic.

 

Two Skye sisters will be running a 5k in memory of their grandmother.  

Hannah and Morven Shankie and their boyfriends, Kurk and Steven, will be taking part in the Inverness 5k on 26 May 2019.

The sisters will be raising money for Cancer Research UK during their Race for Life run.  

An eight week long maintenance project will take place on the two bridges that make up the Skye crossing.

The project will see expansion joints replaced on both bridges.  

The £600,000 project will begin on Monday 13 May.  Temporary traffic lights will be in place at various periods throughout the project.  

BEAR Scotland have said: "Expansion joints are essential components on large bridges such as the Skye Bridge Crossing, as some bridge sections can move by up to 24cm during changes in temperature between the summer and winter months.
