The information centre at Brough is in situ and updated regularly with information about the area. The maps of the Core Path network in Brough will be made available shortly.
Project for 2014 We will be looking for someone to run the information centre in 2014. They will need to have a good knowledge of Caithness and north Sutherland, or be willing to learn. Interested parties from outwith the area will be given study materials and need to pass a test. If they are students, they will need to be studying a University accredited course in tourism or related subject. Business students will also be considered.
Project for 2014 We will also be looking for some to assist with organising the duathalon in September 2014. The applicant will need a good working knowledge of event management organisation and preferably be a triathalete themselves.
All of the above projects will be discussed at a Trustees' meeting on 18th January 2014. However, if you would like to express your interest, please contact us.
Working with the Highland Council to mark paths in the Brough area. The core path network will be marked shortly, followed by the non core path plan next spring.
The Trust has submitted the idea of developing Dunnet Head under the Call for Sites as advertised by the Council in August 2013
The Trust is delighted to be working with LSBU again. One of their students, Jeevi Jeganathan, is working with us to update the web site of the North Highland Way.
Corporate Services and the Ward Manager have been most helpful in assisting with looking into the activities of the Community Council, and in particular their non support of the Trust and deliberate attempts to undermine the Trust. They have also attempted to undermine the Company in its bid for the North Highland Way and refused to bring forward petitions for toilets at Dunnet Head and access to the eastern side of Dunnet Head. Unfortunately THC cannot force them to produce these documents, but we have approached the CEO of THC regarding the former.
There are minutes omitted from the Community Council web site and our representatives attended meetings in September and October and were ignored. There was, however, no quorate in the meeting of October 8th.
Date of the next meeting 8th January 2014.
