Meet The Team
Having grown up on Skye, Sarah has always had a keen interest in the area and its people, especially in connection with the crofts and the crofting communities.
After attending Portree High School, Sarah went on to study for her LLB(Hons) at the University of Dundee, however the pull of Skye was too great and as such on completion of her studies, she returned to Skye to work for Ferguson MacSween & Stewart.
Sarah started as a Trainee with Ferguson MacSween & Stewart and over the years has worked her way through to becoming one of the Partners in the Firm.
When not at work, Sarah enjoys spending time with her family and likes to get out and about around the amazing Island that we live on.
