The Kingussie Am Fasgadh Regeneration Company (ARC) made another major step forward with their long term plans to redevelop the previous site of the Highland Folk museum in town. At a well-attended information session on 21st May in the Iona Gallery, ARC chairperson Mairi Brown announced that Simpson & Brown architects of Edinburgh have now been selected to take forward, what has now been defined as a £3.8M project.
Kingussie has been looking its best this year with flower displays once again on the High Street. The baskets were organised by the Kingussie Business Forum with support from the Community Council. Maintenance over the summer months has been carried out by a watering team of willing volunteers! The Memorial Gardens have also been looking excellent this year thanks to the expert care and attention of Charlie the gardener.
Kingussie played host once again this year to the Bikeathon event which took place on the 25th June 2017 with well in excess of 200 riders taking part. Now in its 24th year, this was the 2nd year charity partner CHSS (Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland) led the fundraising campaign.
