I set this site up after reading our local paper, the West Highland Free Press. The paper has covered the local area news in both English and Gaelic on a weekly basis, of late there have been a number of articles by Keith MacKenzie covering the possibility of a scheduled air service being restarted from the air strip at Ashaig.

As someone who commutes from Skye to wherever my next job is and who has a keen interest in aviation, I am interested in seeing a service of some sort reinstated at this air strip. Although with the economic climate and the total lack of any significant infrastructure other than a 770m asphalt runway, this is going to be an uphill struggle by any standards.

But as anyone who has read Calum’s Road will tell you, even one solitary person can make a significant difference.
