    Weʼve raised £1,480 to Preserve and maintain community and public vehicular access to Rua Reidh - a beautiful lighthouse located in Gairloch, Wester Ross

    Gairloch, United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 21st April 2016

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The Rua Reidh lighthouse was built at the beginning of the 20th Century having been designed by the famous Lighthouse Stevensons. Rua Reidh is located on the northern tip of the Gairloch peninsula in Wester Ross, North-West Highlands. It is perched upon cliffs overlooking the Inner Minch - the Minch itself having some of the deepest waterways in Britain. From Rua Reidh, you can see some of the most glorious marine life in the whole of the UK.

    The funding will help to preserve and maintain public and community vehicular access to Rua Reidh, and where necessary help fund the proposed formal adoption of this 3 mile road which runs from the nearby village of Melvaig right up to Rua Reidh. The costs may include legal costs relating to preventing private property owners from denying vehicular access, such access having been free for some 50 years. Surplus funding will be used in equal share to help the National Lighthouse Board and Gairloch Community Council in continuing it's great work in preserving such a historic landmark for all to enjoy

    For those of you who have never visited this most spectacular place, I would urge you to do so. Once seen, never forgotten.

    I was born in Yorkshire. I decided to visit the Highlands of Scotland for the first time some 14 years ago. I immediately fell in love with the place and decided to get a place up there. It is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places I have ever visited
