Did the NC500 attract investment?

According to a major landowner on the North Highland Way route, the NC500 did not attract the investment it expected. This is not surprising for a number of reasons:

1 Who would want to invest in an area where both the Highland Council and the local “Enterprise” organisation suppress inward investment by wanting everything free of charge, thereby generating no money for the area in taxes.

2. Who would want to invest in an area where the roads are clogged up with caravans all summer?

3. Who would want to invest in an area where they do not like environmental protection, or even know what it is?

You could always ask the special consultant who knows the area like the back of her hand and is working with InvestNI to look at opportunities.
