This is uphill struggle - I know, as we sail around the islands and see the rubbish build up. What you are doing is the only way to reach it and even then there will be places that are impossible to get to. Thank you so much for doing this!!

£250 paid in on behalf of Minginish Community Hall Association - thanks very much! 'Minginish Community Hall Association would like to make a small donation to your beach clean boat appeal on behalf of the wider community, with income received from the Fairy Pools car park. The intention of the car park project has always been to enable local projects, especially ones that will improve the environment and help offset the impact of humans in general and tourism in particular (Fairy Pools itself being a prime example).'

Well done Gill!! I am passionate about this issue as well and try to do my bit every week. The beach at Trumpan is particularly under siege but it never fails to amaze and depress me to see every part of coastline affected by marine pollution. Hope to meet you along the coastline one day soon. I will keep tabs on your project and try to join efforts with you in due course. All the best and well done!

Wishing you all the luck in the world with this great little project. Skye is our spiritual home (we regularly make the journey from Liverpool for a week or two) & just love the people, the nature & the outstanding beauty.
