Reimagining Strathaird Study Gets Underway

05/09/2022

We are excited to join the John Muir Trust in exploring development opportunities in Strathaird on the Isle of Skye with the local community and wider stakeholders. Community development consultant Duncan MacPherson from the Isle of Harris will lead the work, and we will be working alongside the Portree-based architecture and design practice Rural Design and business advisor Faye MacLeod from Campbell Stewart MacLennan & Co.

The study will involve considering various sensitive development options for the area, including supporting the sustainable management of the land and delivering real benefits for the community, wider society and the planet. At Strathaird there is an opportunity to inspire people to connect with and share in the value of wild places, and discussions could include the need for affordable housing, smallholdings, property for business use, the development of an education or visitor centre, and improved visitor information.
