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.
