Body recovered from Skye croft
A BODY has been discovered following a fire in north Skye.
Emergency services attended a croft house in Kilmuir after a blaze broke out on Boxing Day, but the damage was so severe that police and fire officers were unable to enter the building until it could be confirmed as structurally safe.
The identity of the deceased had not been identified when
The Oban Times went to press. A police spokesman said: ‘An examination of the premises has since taken place and police can confirm that sadly the remains of a person were discovered within the house. Enquiries remain ongoing at this time to confirm the identity of the deceased.
‘ The incident is not being treated as suspicious. A report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.’
