Tom Leppard, AKA Leopard Man, whose entire body is covered in leopard-spot tattoos, is calling it quits: he's going to move into a retirement home!
The Leopard Man, who spent £5,500 on tattoos, used to have to canoe three miles for his weekly shopping, but he has now moved from his remote stretch of shoreline near Kyleakin after admitting he's getting too old at 73.
Mr Leppard, an ex-special forces soldier, told the Daily Telegraph: "I was perfectly happy in the bothy but I'm like everyone else - I'm getting too old for that kind of life.
"I had to canoe to Kyle once a week for shopping and it was getting too hard for me - I was one big wave away from disaster. It's a pretty nasty stretch of water.
"About six weeks ago a friend with a boat offered to take me off and I just decided there and then to go."
