Highlands and Islands Enterprise

The Highlands and Islands Enterprise will fund this

but they won’t put a penny into this.  www.northhighlandway.co.uk which will be the only multi use route in Scotland, which adheres to the principles of sustainable tourism.

Nor would the Highland Council pay a mere £2000 for a land owner survey.

You can see the whole story at www.letsgonorthnewsservice.wordpress.com

The folk at MacKays hotel in Wick just ejected LetsGoNorth from Venture North as they didn’t like them hitting out at their funders.  It was not a committee decision.  Of course they didn’t.  They didn’t want LetsGoNorth in the North Highland Initiative either, but they wanted their expertise.  How can the folk at the hotel have so much power and influence? Another journalist might like to phone the owner, Mr. Lamont, to find out.  LetsGoNorth who manage the North Highland Way have also written to Prince Charles.

 

More outrage… now the UK Government want this project to go ahead.  It must be stopped.  Get rid of HIE.
