The Big Lottery spends more than a penny at Huisinis
The Lottery’s “Investing in Ideas” fund is kick-starting a project to redevelop the Huisinis Public Toilets. The current toilet block is nearly 20 years old, and is in dire need of an update. The North Harris Trust has received the grant of nearly £5000 to engage an Architect to carry out a Feasibility Study.
Following the huge popularity of the Eagle Observatory, the plan is to build something similar at Huisinis, incorporating modern toilet facilities. We plan to work closely with Scottish Natural Heritage, who are keen to draw attention to the special machair landscape at Huisinis. We also plan to work with the local community to try to address some of the issues that the summer influx of visitors is causing.
This is the first step for the project. The study will give us some architect’s impressions of what the building could look like with indicative costs. This will help us look for funding for the redevelopment itself.
