Caithness Walking Festival 15 -
23 May 2004
It is hoped that the festival will be a boost for local tourism and the economy in general. Traditionally there is a downturn in tourism trade after Easter, and there is a window of about 5 weeks before the season gathers pace. The event is being organised by the Tina Irving from Dunnet Head, the Waybaggers, the Caithness Field Club, and Ron Pratt (a professional guide). The group met last Saturday to prepare the groundwork for the event. All the walks will be guided by experienced and knowledgeable guides. Information will also be available from the Dunnet Head Information Point regarding tracks in the Dunnet area and the Forest Enterprise land.
The festival has the backing of the Highlands of Scotland Tourist Board and VisitScotland, and will be marketed via some of their publications.
