Bridge on Public Path in Portree Damaged

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Thursday April 12 2018

Police on Skye have appealed for information after a wooden bridge was dismantled on a public path near Portree.

The bridge carries the path across a burn, allowing access from Viewfield Road to the Forestry Commission walk at Shullishader.

It is believed that the damage was caused sometime between the evening of Monday, April 9 and the morning of Tuesday, April 10.

Commenting Constable Lesley Campbell said:

"The walk is frequently used by a large amount of dog walkers, joggers, and cyclists and this dismantling of the bridge has caused a considerable amount of upset in the community.

"Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Portree police station on 101, quoting reference number NP1859/18.

“Alternatively, you can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."
