Those who helped..

These are some of the businesses who helped the author kickstart the North Highland Way in 2011:

Sandras Backpackers
Rural Retreats
Mike Browne, Self Catering in Thurso
Weigh Inn, Thurso
Wild Orchid, Durness
Castle Arms Hotel, Mey
Lauren, Mey
Dunnet Head Self Catering and B&B (now changed hands and do not assist)
Northern Sands Hotel
Marine B&B Thurso
Holborn Hotel, Thurso
Halladale Inn (changed hands)
Sharvedda, Strathy

At the same time, the Highland Council paid for a consultancy report to be carried out and is  available in the book “Creating the North Highland Way”  Cost £10 on Lulu – which proved that the huge project could not be achieved on a voluntary basis.

We were assisted by the Highland Council Access Officer and Colin Simpson, Tourism Coordinator, but the Director of Planning and Infrastructure did not support, despite having given a letter of support in 2008.

The author would like to thank those businesses who helped, and those who continue to help, such as Thomas Kissock of McEwan Fraser in Inverness and the Wild Orchid (although this has changed hands now as well).
