North Aberdeenshire LEADER have awarded a grant to a new glamping venture, which is hoped will boost tourism in the area.

A grant of up to £33,548.62 has been awarded to the Buchan Development Initiative to help install a new glamping area in the Aden Caravan and Camping Park. 

Three projects have been awarded funding from the South Aberdeenshire LEADER programme.

In the programme's first funding rounds, the South Aberdeenshire LEADER Local Action Group has awarded £225,475 to the following projects:

  • Strathorn Riding School Development
  • Finzean Farm Shop Development
  • Ringlink Internship Programme

South Aberdeenshire LAG Chair Liam Smyth from Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce said:

In this event report, Don Morrison from the Scottish Rural Network Support Unit reports on the recent cooperation event in Estonia, and Kim Ritchie from Angus LEADER tells us about the Local Action Group tour she took part in as part of the event.

The recent Transnational Cooperation (TNC) Fair held in Estonia was attended by a number of Scottish representatives including delegates from Angus and Cairngorms LEADER as well as Don Morrison and Alistair Prior from the Scottish Rural Network.

Scottish Rural Action have launched a new rural manifesto ahead of the second Scottish Rural Parliament event.

The manifesto will be agreed at the Scottish Rural Parliament taking place in Brechin, Angus from 6 to 8 October. Around 400 people are expected to attend the event.

The manifesto has been created following a series of events across rural Scotland, and an online survey, with people sharing their views on the issues that matter the most to them.

Applications are currently open for this year's Scottish Enterprise Rural Leadership programme.

The programme is aimed at business managers and employees from rural businesses who want to develop their leadership skills and grow their business.

The course will include:
