Projects include tourism development in the north of Scotland, including the North Highland Way, a walking route across the top of Scotland, which we hope that one day will be a cycling and horse riding track as well, akin to the South West path.
The raising of the profile of Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of the UK mainland.

During July we undertook a major marketing exercise with Rioja wines in Scotland and England. This is now complete, and we will regroup with the updated feasibility and business plan for the North Highland Way and are looking at events for 2020 with Tourism NI. Green Destinations are also key. We have already achieved it in Competa, and wonder who will be next. Belfast, Armagh, Highland Region, Orkney. My money is on Orkney and the Gateway to the North Highland Way.
I am also writing a novel about “Nuala” – Two pairs of blue eyes. This is not due out for another couple of years. I am also writing three booklets about life in Brough village.
The Battle of Brough Bay
Brian Sparks bought Windhaven in 2000 and ran it with his then partner, Tina Irving. The two, originally from Kent and Lincolnshire, were firstly welcomed by the villagers, until the Brough Bay Association took it upon themselves to make their lives hell. You can read about what became known as “the Battle of Brough Bay” here.
