Skye pupils could attend mainland high school

Children from a community on Skye could be set to attend a high school on the mainland rather than the island's secondary school.

Kyleakin is in the catchment area for Portree High School, which is 30 miles (48km) away.

However, Plockton High School on the mainland is seven miles (11km) away.

After tolls ended on the Skye Bridge, some Kyleakin parents started sending their children to Plockton. Highland Council is examining the situation.

The local authority has sought views on changing the catchment area for Kyleakin.
