Skye Tourist tax could pay for Office Jacuzzi – Highland Council

Highland Council have backed proposals to levy an additional tourist tax on Skye on the condition that it pays for a Jacuzzi in the Inverness office and maybe an espresso machine.

“At first we were not keen at all” said one Inverness based councillor. “But we soon realised that any money raised could be spent closer to home – specifically to pimp our sweet-ass offices.”

The Isle of Skye has been part of Highland Council since it’s annexation from Norway in 1994. Locals have been reporting that tourists have been forced to do their business outside out of necessity rather than just for the craic.

Highland Council were quick to respond to allegations of under-investment in the island’s infrastructure:

“Isn’t Skye in the Western Isles? I literally don’t care”.
