Don't attempt to use the Moll loop road, warns Amanda Nairne.

Amanda took to Facebook to inform other road users that "the Moll loop road is somewhat impassible after it slipped into the sea!"

The Moll road, located near Sconser, forms an alternative route if the main road should be blocked.  

The Fairy Glen has been transformed over the weekend, thanks to the hard work of over 20 volunteers.

After a photograph of multiple cairns sparked outrage on the Internet, volunteers headed to the Fairy Glen on Saturday 15 September to dismantle the rocks, claiming they posed a danger to wildlife, plant life and even people.  

Sylvia Porter, admin of the Staffin, Isle of Skye, Scotland Facebook page, told The Skye Times: "One resident produced a leaflet explaining the Fairy Glen and the outdoor access code.

"These were given out on the day to tourists visiting and will be available in local shops.

Stone piles at the Fairy Glen have caused outrage online.

A photograph, taken by Claire Irons, sparked a response from many when it was posted to local Facebook groups, including Friends Of The Fairy Glen.  

Comments included one from Marjorie Genders, who stated: "What an absolute disgrace.  We first came to Skye as visitors in 1971, continued at least once a year, until we moved to Skye 18 years ago.  Loved it, would never have done anything to the landscape etc.  We moved away last year, we saw many changes over the years, not always for the good."

Others are of the opinion that, apart from there being so many, no obvious harm is caused.
