A sustainable tourism event will be held on 17th July 2019 in North Sutherland.  Booking is essential.  It is not a free event. If you feel as though you may be able to get a grant to attend, please contact Highlands and Islands Enterprise board.  You will no doubt have to pay then claim the money back from them.

The North Highland Way is a sustainable tourism route.  We are working hard with a number of environmental organisations in Ireland, both North and South, to bring about change, and raise the awareness further of climate change.  This site will shortly be subsumed into the North Highland Way project, where it rightly belongs.
