Make your voice heard on the park plan
There is a plan underway to decimate the green space known as Drakies Park.
This plan would construct an access road from the proposed accommodation in the field behind the police station to the Eagle Roundabout on Sir Walter Scott Drive.
Safe green spaces close to home would be lost and air and noise pollution would increase.
This green space is MOST IMPORTANT for the health and well-being of the current population and our future generations.
Readers, please contact the Planning Department to reject this plan.
The townhouse is a vital concert hall for the city
I agree with Paul Wilson that growing audiences since Covid has been a challenge (Letters, 6/10/22), but MusicInverness has operated successfully for over 25 years so far thanks to subsidies.
I dispute his assertion that there are many alternative venues in Inverness for small-scale musical creation.
Artists and audiences alike agree that the acoustics of the townhouse are very special, and that’s why world-class artists want to visit Inverness and play here.
The old high church would make a good place in the future, but its future is uncertain as it is for sale.
So losing the townhouse as a venue would be a blow to Highland music lovers.
The writer criticized the loch comments
Tourism leaders have hit back after an American journalist criticized Loch Ness and claimed Nessie didn’t exist. Cameron Hewitt shared his thoughts via Facebook, describing the loch as “the most boring and hyped up lake I have ever seen”.
“Cameron has to go back where he came from. He can’t see the beauty of Scotland through our eyes and Loch Ness in particular. Most lakes in the United States (except the big ones) have houses built all around, completely spoiling the natural beauty of the area. If that isn’t boring, what is? Leave Loch Ness alone! –Catherine Steinman, Syracuse
