Dunoon's Forests website goes live!
10 March 2010
Back in Spring 2009 Verity and associate Eleanor Bird spent a happy (snowy!) week in Dunoon, working with the local Forestry Commission Scotland team to research, write and provide images for a new website for Dunoon's Forests.
Initially these forests, which cap the hills above Dunoon and have stunning 'windows oor the watter' of the Firth of Clyde, were referred to as 'Corlarach'. Our detailed community consultation showed that few local folk recognised this name, and so the rather friendlier 'Dunoon's forests' was chosen as the title instead.
See http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/forestry.nsf/byunique/infd-7stljv for the home page and http://www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/INFD-7TJJUB as a sample of our approach to communicating the rich naval history of the area.
Enjoy the protest song, sung by Interpretaction associate Anne Marie Goldie.
