Skye Marble has been extracted from Strath Suardal in Torrin for centuries. Marble from Torrin was used in Armadale Castle and Iona Abbey. The extracted rock was used primarily in the production of agricultural lime.
Marble is mined and crushed on site, producing agricultural lime, pebbledash for housing, ready-mix concrete products and some decorative marble.
A narrow gauge line, built in 1907 ran for 3½ miles from the quarry at Suardale to Broadford pier. It transported Skye Marble from the nearby village of Kilbride (Cille Bhrìghde). The railway closed in the early 20th century and the track bed remains as a public footpath. A number of old railway remains can be seen.

In their products, the Isle of Skye Paint Company continues to introduce raw, natural materials where possible. Recently, this included organic seaweed.

These natural ingredients ensure that the paint emits no harmful gases, and produces low VOCs.
