A Flow Country World Heritage Site (WHS) could become a significant accolade for Caithness and Sutherland and the many organisations, businesses, land managers, crofters and farmers in the area; it could also bring positive development opportunities, though undoubtedly some challenges too.
The purpose of this consultation was to: present the outline idea for a WHS and to establish what local communities feel about it; and to see how local aspirations can potentially be met through the development of a World Heritage Site that meets local needs as well as recognizing the global importance of this area of blanket bog.
