Could motorists be weaned off the A9?

The Badenoch Great Place Project, a partnership made up of key local organisations involved in heritage across Badenoch, is exploring the potential for an alternative tourist route through the area.

The dream of the organisation is to develop ideas to encourage visitors off the A9 so they can enjoy beautiful routes through the Parish.

"We’d love to know what you think about this idea – where the route could go, what it should focus on, how the local community could benefit and be involved," said a spokesperson for BGPP, which has a three-year remit to promote Badenoch as a heritage magnet.

Independent tourism consultants STR have been commissioned to speak with strath folk and visitors from around Scotland, the UK and beyond.

They will be holding a drop-in session at the Highland Folk Museum (Leanach Mission Church) on Saturday, April 6 from 11am to 3pm.

"We’d be delighted if Strathy readers had time to come and give us their views – this could be five minutes or 20 minutes – it’s entirely up to them."
