In our latest page of historic photographs of Staffin and its people, we publish fresh images kindly loaned to us. 

In the last decade the Staffin women have dominated the tug o’ war at the Skye Highland Games. But several decades ago the Staffin men were also to the forefront of the keenly contested competition. Our pictures show a group of local men at The Lump in Portree before, and during, their tussle in the tug o’war. 

We also have an excellent picture taken of local crofters at a sale, possibly in Elishadder, and some other images you may find of interest. To look at the photographs more closely, click on each one directly. If anybody has any pictures they would like to loan for inclusion then please let Hugh Ross, Staffin Trust development officer, know on 01470 562464 or e-mail
