Tourism Survey of Coigach & Assynt

Last year CALL commissioned Market Sphere to conduct a Marketing Research Report on Visitor Information for Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape Partnership (CALLP) Scheme.

Learning The Way!

By Katrina Martin, CALLP Education Manager (Job Share) Ever since I stepped into the role of Education Manager for the Outdoor & Woodland Learning Project I have been excited at the prospect of delivering an Outdoor Learning session themed around paths, especially given the variety of paths and access projects CALLP has. Like many of us, I enjoy going out

We’ve ‘Done’ Suilven

Guest blog by Chris Goodman, Path Project Officer for the John Muir Trust I look at my watch, it’s 5.30pm and it’s still a long walk back to Glencanisp from the steep slope on the north side of Suilven.

I’m keen to meet up with the “upper team” that I first saw on that cold foggy day; well over a year ago now. Before I head

The team worked on two sections, one halfway up the slope where the path had become a steep loose scree shoot and at the bealach where a broad gully

Working on the Path

Guest Blog by path worker, Mark O’Brien To have the privilege to be able to work in such an amazing place really is the best thing about building the Suilven path. I’ve always had an attachment to Glencanisp since I first arrived that spring in 2014. Now I’m getting the chance to watch it change over the season; all the
