Update - Restoration Village


This morning, it was announced that the Scottish finalist in the Restoration Village programme was the Dennis Head Lighthouse on North Ronaldsay, Orkney.

The final vote, in the UK wide competition, will take place in September, and will set the old lighthouse against eight other contenders from other regions. The winner will gain £1.9million towards its restoration. This money would more than cover the projected cost of renovating the Lighthouse and keeper's cottage. It would also mean a much needed boost in the flagging fortunes of North Ronaldsay, as I reported in my initial piece.

I would like to join with the Scottish manager for the Heritage Lottery Fund [who back Restoration Village] in calling for people not just in the islands but in the whole of Scotland and beyond to back Dennis Head in the forthcoming final vote.

Hear Backie from Westray is already scouting the place. Hope he does not take all the guano back with him for his garden, but leaves some behind. I don't expect he'll want to move to north Ronaldsay?
