LetsGoNorth was formed in 1998 by the then MP for Caithness and Sutherland, John Thurso. There were many projects when I lived in Caithness (2000 to 2016). These included Hands Across the Firth project with Orkney, the bed and breakfast and tearoom at Dunnet Head, and many projects with the Dunnet Head Educational Trust (2003 to 2014). I also developed a News Service to keep people up to date with what is happening with the burgeoning North Highland Way.
LetsGoSouth was formed in 2010 to complement LetsGoNorth. I started exploring linkages between Spain and Scotland and even launched an on line guide explaining the ethos of this connection. Many Scots fought in the Spanish Civil War, kilts and bagpipes rule in the North of Spain and of course there is the independence question hanging over Catalonia and Scotland. You can see the online magazine here.
LetsGoWest was formed in 2018 with the Hispanic Society of Carrickfergus exploring historical linkages between Ireland and Spain, as well as Scotland. The most obvious of these is the Spanish Armada which fled from Francis Drake up the North Antrim coast and from there to Scotland.
