Staffin Community Trust to appeal Storr land rejection

A SKYE community organisation is to request a formal review into its rejected bid to buy land at one of the island’s most popular landmarks, the Old Man of Storr.

Earlier this month, the council refused SCT’s Asset Transfer Request (ATR), which was the first in the Highlands under the new Community Empowerment Act.
