Danny MacAskill will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough video today (Friday 19 April.)

The Skye sensation's video, launched in 2009, was viewed by thousands overnight and skyrocketed Danny's cycling career.   

To celebrate, Danny and his street trials stunt display team, Drop and Roll Tour,, head to the capital for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019, with a brand new supercharged live indoor show, featuring jaw-dropping stunts and gravity-defying tricks. 

Visitors to Torabhaig Distillery will likely see a surprising new resident.

Goat kid, Goaty, has been recently adopted by the Distillery team.

The team explained: "Some months ago a local was going about his daily work in Kintail.

"He came across a newborn billy goat kid who cried for hours and started to follow him around.

"After finding what presumably was the goats mother dead beside the road he decided to take the kid home to his family and give him a better chance of survival."

A couple's wedding day took a unique twist when it was gatecrashed by the local Mountain Rescue Team!

Skye Mountain Rescue were responding to their second incident in 24 hours.

A US citizen had sustained an ankle injury at the Old Man of Storr and required airlifting to hospital by the coastguard helicopter.
