Dornoch Carnegie Court House .........
Thanks to the generosity of Todd & Liz Warnock of Links House there is a real possibility that we could soon be enjoying aftenoon tea in a Carnegie themed Court Room, sampling exclusive whiskies and enjoying a spa!
But we need YOU to make it happen! The community has to raise £20,000 as its share of the costs of a new visitor centre. Hundreds of local residents signed in support of saving the court house a few years ago, so now by pledging some financial aid, the dream can become a reality!
Click here for the pledge form. We raised over £1,000 in the first 24 hours, and passed the half way point after ten days, so let's keep going!
Highland Council also have to pledge to retain the Servcie Point for five years - so please respond to their consultation to let them know how you feel - click here
DACIC has been awarded £40,000 from the VisitScotland growth fund to promote Dornoch as a visitor destination. This matches the combined funding already in place from the Business Group members, The Common Good Fund and the Coastal Communities Fund. Congratulations to DACIC chair Jenifer Cameron who put the bid together, described by VisitScotland as the best application they have seen!
Dornoch has been awarded a grant of just under £100k from the Coastal Communities Fund, for a new printed map, a mobile app, pedestrian signage (4 "you are here" maps and 13 fingerposts) and a part time post of Marketing Development Officer (MDO) for 18 months. We are delighted to announce that Lucy Williams has been appointed as the MDO and takes up her position at the next board meeting on 9th April.
The Coastal Communities Fund is funded by the Government with income from the Crown Estate’s marine assets. It is delivered by the Big Lottery Fund on behalf of UK Government and the Devolved Administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
