Exit polls produced by Skye News have shown that the Inverness, Skye and West Ross-shire is too tight to call while Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross looks like a win for the Liberal Democrats.

The far north seat looks clearly to be a win for the Liberal Democrats with a 99 per cent chance he will win and be returned to Westminster as voters seem to keep the faith with Jamie Stone.

But Sky News polling says at the moment the seat is too close to call but that there is a 74 per cent likelihood that the SNP will win the seat while there is a 15 per cent chance the Liberal Democrats will win.

It is the tightest race for many years in what would be a major scalp for the Lib Dems and major blow for the SNP after a boundary shake-up took a safe SNP seat and turned it highly competitive.

Similar information is being reflected by counting agents working for various parties who are similarly showing no clear trend yet in favour of either the SNP’s Drew Hendry and the Liberal Democrat’s Angus MacDonald.
