Raasay residents are being invited by the Scottish Government to reflect on the future of their island. There is the prospect of a community buyout to be read about on a BBC website item and for the consultation to continue until 7 June. The population is just under the 200 mark and the derivation of the island's name comes from the Old Norse for either 'roe deer' or possibly 'horse'.
