Highland Council asked to shut four schools on Skye

Councillors have recommended that Highland Council closes four schools on Skye and replaces them with a new building on one of the sites.

The local authority's education committee has backed the proposed closures of Edinbane, Dunvegan, Knockbreck and Struan primaries.

A new school would be built at Dunvegan.

The proposal will be put to a full meeting of Highland Council in March.
