One of Scotland’s smallest and most remote schools has been forced to close today.

Scoraig Primary and nursery, west of Ullapool on the peninsula between Little Loch Broom and Loch Broom, asked its one pre-school and six primary pupils to stay at home after a heating failure.

The off-grid community, set in beautiful rugged scenery, has no connecting road and can only be reached by boat or a long, winding path.

The school hopes to have the heating issue resolved in time for classes on Monday.
