Brighter face of tourism project
The Brighter Face of Tourism project continues to progress. The visitor website is underway and will provide a platform for Applecross to shine its light on conservation, environment, and responsible tourism. The beach clean campaign is now with the designer, and will look to be ready for the summer season. All these small measures will hopefully make a big difference to those lving in and visiting the area.
The Applecross Trust recently advertised a property for rent within the estate policies. A local couple have secured the rental and happily moved in to their new home.
Hartfield House Hostel
Hartfield House Hostel is now closed for works until 1 March. Bookings for the coming season are looking healthy, and with the ongoing improvements, it is hoped this will only improve customer experience further.
At the last Applecross Forum meeting in September, the Applecross Trust proposed that a committee be formed to look at developing future projects. The committee was to be a mix of Applecross Trust trustees, and local community members. The first projects to be looked at are the development of the stables, the old cart shed, and the steading. The first meeting of the committee took place 12 January 2023. A good start to the new year!
