“People definitely want to stay here – work here, learn here,” she told reporter Nicola McAlley while talking about connectivity and learning. 

The report focuses on ‘The Island Initiative’ - a group created by young adults on Skye to highlight their concerns around what they see as key election issues such as housing, employment, culture and connectivity.
