Alexander Mcqueen's Skye Ashes

Alexander McQueen's ashes will be scattered in the Isle of Skye.

Although the fashion designer - who died last month at the age of 40 after committing suicide in his London home - was born in the UK capital, he regarded the Scottish island as his ancestral home and told his family he wanted it to be his final resting place.

His brother said: "Alexander was back and forward all over the world but he felt at home when he was in Scotland."

His father Ronald and five siblings will travel to the island in the next few weeks to fulfil his wishes

Alexander often paid homage to his Scottish roots with one of his most famous collections, Highland Rape, being inspired by the Highland clearances and when he collected his CBE in 2003 he wore his full Highland dress.

Last month, Alexander's funeral took place at St Paul's Church in Knightsbridge, London, where mourners paid their final respects to the designer.

Some of the biggest names in fashion, including Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss and Stella McCartney, attended the private ceremony.

Bouquets of flowers, which included lilies and white roses, were delivered to the church ahead of the service, which was also attended by McQueen's father and his five children.

McQueen - real name Lee - was discovered hanged in a wardrobe at his London home by his cleaner on the eve of his beloved mother's funeral on 11 February.

An inquest into his death was told he left a suicide note for his loved ones, which is believed to have been found at the scene.
