The Dunnet Head Educational Trust (2003 to 2014) was involved in many development projects. The organisation started life as a community group and still serves the community through its work with the Highland Council on developing access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. In 2014, we assisted by installing new signage outwith the core path plans. A bridge has been provided across a ditch on to Brough common which facilitates walking off road walking. A community noticeboard has been placed at the entrance to the village for use by the RSPB and other organisations. We have updated a pathway to a seal viewing point.
The Trust has also been involved in wider projects with visits to Orkney, inputting into government consultations, assisting with the development of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003, and reporting to SNH as the property is on a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). In the past, the Trust was the organising body for the Caithness & Sutherland Walking Festival and the premises of the cafe were used as an information centre with the support of VisitScotland, the Highland Council, the Forestry Commission and SNH. There is a Friends of the North Highland Way and monies are distributed to improve access.
