Festive cheer provided by Skye and Lochalsh youngsters

Raasay school’s Christmas show was inspired by local legend

Youngsters from Skye and Lochalsh have been busy staging various shows and attending Christmas parties in recent weeks.

Raasay Primary School recently presented their Christmas Show ‘A Raasay Folktale’ to a packed audience in the island Community Hall.

Raasay School has just seven pupils

The Raasay community were welcomed to an evening of traditional storytelling, inspired by local folklore.

Written and created by the pupils, the show took the audience back to a time when people listened to stories, passed from one generation to the next.
