The Most Northerly Point of the British Mainland Joins Wild Scotland

The Trustees of our newest member, the Dunnet Head Educational Trust are delighted to have recently become a member of Wild Scotland, a proactive and forward thinking organisation. 

The Trust is finalising the arrangements for the Caithness & Sutherland Walking Festival (1-8 May) and working with the Caithness Chamber of Commerce to look at ways of developing the walking product in the far north of Scotland. This includes the Scottish Coastal Way, being accredited to the “Walkers are Welcome” scheme and working with a London University to create an integrated database driven scheme for booking walks. 

As part of the Walking Festival, Dunnet Head Educational Trust are offering the chance to win two tickets with Eastern Airways so you can travel in style to Wick. To enter, click here.

Dunnet Head is a great place to view wildlife – puffins, fulmar and razorbills are just some of the birds which nest on the Head, and there are regular visits from cetaceans and even a resident seal colony in Brough Bay.  The Trust has created a DVD which depicts the many aspects of the Head, dubbed “Caithness in Miniature” by Wild Scotland. 

As the perimeter of Dunnet Head is a Site of Special Scientific Interest, it seems appropriate that the Trust is a partner in the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity and is involved with many activities throughout the year.  So, here is hoping for a good season, lots of wildlife watching, and enjoying the great outdoors at the most northerly point of the UK mainland.
