Public meetings will be held in Portree on 13 September, Broadford on 14 September and Dunvegan on 4 October.

The proposal paper and associated documentation will be available on the Highland Council website from 28 August at:  www.highland.gov.uk/schoolconsultations 

Similar exercises will be rolled out across the Highland Council area.
