The Highland Council will shortly be seeking the views of local communities on the future of Struan Primary School in Skye, and Torridon Primary School in Wester Ross.

Both schools are currently ‘mothballed’, Struan since April 2022, and Torridon since June 2012.

Members of the Council’s Education Committee have agreed to undertake formal public consultations on proposals to formally close the schools.

Both consultations will take place under procedures set down in The Schools (Consultation) (Scotland) Act 2010.

In the case of Struan Primary, the views of parents, school pupils, the local community and others will be sought over a period extending from 23 February to 21 April 2023.

A public meeting will be held in Struan on 20 March 2023.

In the case of Torridon, the public consultation will begin on 27 February 2023, and the public meeting will be held on 28 March 2023.

The proposal papers and associated documentation will be available, from the beginning of the respective dates, on The Highland Council website at www.highland.gov.uk/schoolconsultations.
