Christmas Tree
On our visit to North Kessock today we were delighted to see the Christmas tree had been put up at the Coastal Garden.

It looked lovely. The community really does make an effort to make North Kessock stand out.

Well done everyone and Merry Christmas to all.

Thank you Moira, I’m glad you liked the Christmas tree.

It is the second year we’ve had one there and will become a village tradition along with the lights in the Coastal Garden to brighten up winter for everyone.

My wife and i are very appreciative of the people who look after this facility.

A wee flower in a vase for the Ladies loo would be an idea?

Best Loos In Scotland!
On our way to Lochinver (from Cumbria) on 03/10/20 for a week's holiday we needed a toilet stop.

I had explored the possibilities beforehand so we arrived at North Kessock for lunch in the car park. The Loos were very clean and useable(!).

There should be a donation box as well as the 20p charge as we would have happily added more money to a worthwhile facility.

We will be back!

thank you to NKTOP members
Thank you to the wonderful members of NKTOP who maintain the immaculate loo facility.

One gets a sense of a friendly and efficient local community who work to make North Kessock such a charming oasis (a bit off the beaten track) of which you can justifiably feel proud.

We come here often to walk and have a picnic. Toilets are always spotless - much appreciated especially with what's happening at moment with covid.

May I say the coastal garden is so lovely - a little haven.

Thanks to all volunteers for what they're doing.

We love North kessock.

Visited today and very impressed with the facilities.

Clean and safe and well worth the 20p (considering many charge 50p now).

Thank you!

The Story of ‘New Era’
A great evening on 7 March listening to and watching an illustrated explanation of the creation and deployment of Rolf Schmidt’s very special solar-powered paddle vessel.

Fascinating to learn how a teenage interest could develop with such impressive outcomes.

A charming and so modest a genius in our neighbourhood! Thank you Rolf and to Maggie and organising team.

TAXI - IT session Monday 18th February 2019
The session was run by Colin Wilson of RANK.

John Tuach gave the presentation advising about online safety and security. He warned us about email scams and how to deal with them, social media privacy settings and advice on passwords.

15 people attended the session and it was very informative. Thanks John.

It is hoped to have sessions on help with phones and tablets in the future.

‘The Front Garden’ Thursday 7th February 2019
Edward Roberts showed us the film ‘The Front Garden’ which was presented by Candida Lycett Green in the 1970s and edited by Edward when he worked in the film industry in London at that time.

The film showed quirky and eccentric gardens created in the south of England.

The gardens ranged from oversized topiary birds and a jockey on horseback, to neatly manicured lawns and a concrete and shell creation.
When a new owner took over the shell garden he set about it with a mallet and the alarmed expressions on the faces of the gnomes said it all!

Edward assured us it was intended to be funny and was even more so with the passage of time.
He said the gales of laughter that evening were the best reaction the film has ever had.

People brought their own drinks and enjoyed nibbles, wine and soft drinks supplied by NKTOP.

Donations for the entertainment and refreshments were made via Kessie our Dolphin mascot.

We comfortably seated a full house of 25 attendees.

The Old Ticket Office is an ideal venue for small intimate events like this and we hope Edward will show more films from his archive in the future.

Open Doors
Popped in to the Old Ticket Office on Saturday, during their "open doors" time.
Welcome at the door, good company and friendly chat inside. Just what is needed on a winter's morning. Oh, and a cup of tea.
