News - Latest Project

Thousands of tourists flock to Chanonry Point in the Black Isle each year to catch a glimpse of the famous bottlenosed dolphins.

The narrow sand path which runs from the busy car park to the point is currently unsuitable for wheelchairs and means that many disabled visitors cannot reach the prime viewing spot.

The car park can also be unsuitable for wheelchair access at peak times as it has limited parking for 30 cars, but can attract up to 100 vehicles at the height of the tourist season.

The parking chaos blocks householders in their homes and has led to vehicles churning up the greens at the golf course.

Now the Cheshire House Muskeeters — a group of wheelchair-users who work together to improve access and facilities for all disabled people in the Highlands — has started to look into establishing a new walkway to the picnic benches at the scenic spot by the firth.
