Raasay Range meeting — update

HMS Trenchant off Skye, near the Raasay Ranges


The Ministry of Defence has changed the times for next week’s meeting to discuss the proposed expansion of the torpedo testing range between Raasay and mainland.

Instead of 6pm to 8.30pm, the meeting is due to run from 7.45pm to 10pm in Kyleakin Hall on Thursday 12th November.

Local fishermen are concerned that expanding the exclusion zone around the range will rob them of valuable fishing grounds.
