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 need one last big push and we will be there!
The Highland Council meeting held on 25th May to review Service Point provision has concluded that Dornoch should remain open! Negotiations are now underway between Mr & Mrs Warnock and the current owner of the Court House and once concluded, the project should be in a position to start. Watch this space!!
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 took up her position on 9th April. The first pedestian sign went up on 21st 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.
