A New Focus

Earlier this year we found out that our bid to the Scottish Land Fund for help had been unsuccessful. We were asking for funding for a consultation to establish the wishes of the community of South Loch Ness for a possible purchase of land from the National Forest Estate. In their feedback, the Scottish Land Fund said that they would like to see a more fully developed proposal.
We met earlier this week to consider our options. We had the help of Duncan Bryden to facilitate or referree our discussion, and it proved to be a hugely productive evening.
He challenged us to think about what we were trying to achieve, and surprisingly we found a great deal of agreement Neil Sutherland is going to write up or new vision statement, but it revolves around our desire to use this opportunity to help create a sustainable community in South Loch Ness.
