Flying the Flag for Coigach Kids

Designed by Achiltibuie Primary School

Last year, children at Achiltibuie Primary School led by Local Development Officer Linda Macleod had a go at designing a flag for Coigach. Their designs were all so good it was difficult to pick one – so we’ve used them all!

Achiltibuie Primary School is currently looking for a new Head Teacher. Highland Council will probably be recruiting for this exiting post soon so if you would like to know more, get in touch and we’ll let you know when it is advertised or watch this space: we’ll post the appropriate links when they are available. Apart from our wonderful children, and fantastic enviroment this job comes with a school house – over looking the Summer Isles.  Hullo Mr or Ms Chips!

 Community Ownership of land in the Highlands and Islands of ScotlandFrom the Low Tide of the Sea to the Highest Mountain Top

Community Ownership of Land in the Highlands and Islands

In recent years, communities in the Scottish Highlands and Islands have taken ownership of more than half a million acres – an area equivalent to that of an English county like Nottinghamshire or West Yorkshire. In places long characterised by contracting economies and shrinking populations, this remarkable development has resulted in new homes, new businesses, greatly enhanced self-confidence and the attraction of lots of new residents.
