Kate Forbes MSP said the rampage was the "worst day that I can ever recall in the history of Skye and Lochalsh".

She added: "I cannot begin to imagine what the family and friends who have lost a loved one are going through, and they should be in all our thoughts and prayers right now. We grieve with them.

“West Highland communities are close-knit, we are warm and welcoming, and this will shatter us to the core.

"It feels like our very heart has been ripped apart. I, and I am sure many others, never thought we would see such an awful day. Not a single West Highland home will be untouched by this terrible tragedy."

Police have linked all the incidents, which unfolded in around an hour on the popular holiday island.

They confirmed there is no wider risk to the public.

Chief Superintendent Conrad Trickett, local policing commander for Highlands and Islands Division, said: "Incidents such as this are thankfully extremely rare but I understand that this will have a significant effect on the local community in these rural areas.

"I would like to reassure people that we are treating these incidents as contained with no wider threat to the public.
