Plans to relocate one of Scotland’s most remote schools have been deferred after an intervention by a parent council.
Highland Council’s education committee were due to deliberate on proposals to relocate Strontian Primary yesterday.
A report was put before the councillors asking for them to agree to accommodate the 34 pupil school in new demountable units in the grounds of Ardnamurchan High School.
But the decision was deferred until the new year by committee chairman Alasdair Christie.
He told the meeting that the parent council had called for the decision to be put back.
The parent council have said they would prefer refurbishment of the existing primary school or a purpose built building at the high school.
The current building forms part of a wider complex, that includes the village hall.
The council have said they will work with the community to explore future use and ownership of the village hall.
