Sub-zero road conditions prompt safety measure at Lealt car park

FREEZING temperatures and ice has prompted the access road to a new car park in Staffin to be temporarily closed.

Staffin Community Trust (SCT) has lowered the height barrier at the foot of the road to its new upper car park at Lealt Gorge. The safety measure was implemented in order to stop vehicles attempting to drive up the track and potentially skid on the frozen surface.

SCT apologies for any inconvenience. The existing main car park, which has spaces for 20 vehicles, and viewing platform both remain open.
