Fish farming company Marine Harvest has announced that Kyleakin on the Isle of Skye is its preferred location for an UK£80m fish feed factory, the BBC reports.

The company said the development on the site of an old quarry would create 55 full-time permanent jobs.

The plant will produce food for the firm's Scottish fish farms as well as those in Norway, Ireland and the Faroe Islands.

Marine Harvest hopes the new plant will be up and running by 2018.

The company made the announcement after consideration of a number of sites on the west coast.

The Kyleakin site is known as Altanavaig (Allt Anabhaig) quarry.
