I started a newsletter some time ago, and you can see the back issues here.
I have recently rejoined the National Union of Journalists Belfast Group.
You can see my LetsGoNorth News Service here
More news from Scotland:
The John o Groats Journal is the local newspaper for Caithness and Sutherland. It rarely mentions the North Highland Way. Lots of local politicking going on up there…! That’s one reason why I created the LetsGoNorth News Service.
News from the Belfast Telegraph in Northern Ireland
And from the Irish Times.
On a consultancy basis, my specialist knowledge is in making community organisations sustainable and not reliant on the public purse. I am familiar with the legal, financial and tourism development agencies in Scotland and am working with SNH, The Highland Council, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the Forestry Commission for Scotland and the Caithness Transport Forum on the North Highland Way project.
When I lived at Dunnet Head, I was the founder of the Dunnet Head Educational Trust (2003 – 2016) which served to raise the profile of Dunnet Head as the most northerly point on the UK mainland by providing information services and event management for the Caithness and Sutherland Walking Festival (2004-2008) as community events. As tourism traffic bypassed Caithness enroute to Orkney, I was keen to forge links across the Pentland Firth. You can see a short video of me at a Scottish National Rural Network event advocating cross Firth working.
I also created the project “LetsGoNorth meets LetsGoSouth” which look at historical and cultural links between Scotland and Spain. In July 2018 I launched LetsGoWest and this has been integrated into my web site at http://www.tinasfreelance.com
