Work to start on fire hit centre

Sections of a historic building badly damaged in a fire on Raasay off Skye in January are to be made safe.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), which helped the local community takeover Raasay House, said the work was the first stage of rebuilding it.

The former stately home was being run as an activity centre. It had been undergoing a major renovation when fire broke out.

The sprawling 258-year-old mansion once belonged to the Clan MacLeod.
