THE ISLE of Skye will launch its first ever GPS map following a collaboration between two local tourism businesses.
The attractions featured in the map are already listed on the Donald from Skye website but the launch of the GPS map means that tourists will be able to navigate between them with ease.
Donald from Skye was launched last year and acts as a hub of information for visitors, with business listings, a ‘recommended by Donald’ list and clips of the animated character Donald, assisted by his trusted companion Fergie the Tractor.
A spokesperson from Donald from Skye said: “We thought it would be great if Explore Skye could recreate all of our recommended places to visit and services you might need on the island in one handy app for our friends to use when they come to visit.”
The map builds on the many features on the Donald from Skye platform designed to make it as user friendly as possible and enhance the visitor experience and is available in both English and Mandarin.
Daniel Willoughby from Explore Skye said: “When Donald from Skye first approached me with the idea of incorporating his interactive map within the Explore Skye app it seemed like a great opportunity.
“Over the course of several months I enjoyed seeing the project come together piece by piece and am now delighted with the end result.”
The app can be purchased for both Android and Apple phones from the Donald from Skye or Explore Skye websites.
