As already stated, increasing ISO in a digital sensor increases the noise.  The dynamic range (the ability of the sensor to capture detail in both deep shadows and bright highlights) is reduced when shadow detail is obscured by noise.

For high contrast subjects, therefore, it's best always to shoot at the lowest possible ISO consistent with the other parameters of aperture and shutter speed.
