A Nairn loon will come of age at the Oylmpic games. Torch bearer James MacDonald will become 18 whilst at the games: "In July he is heading to work as a Young Ambassador with Coca Cola at the Olympic Village and he will spend his 18th birthday on 22 July at the Games." More on the Highland Council site.
The Highland Council are also making much of the Keep Scotland Beautiful flag award for Nairn and other Highland beaches. This observer has always thought that the Marine Conservation Society Good Beach Guide was the benchmark that many holiday makers chose their preferences by however. Anyway, again more on the Highland Council site.
This observer noticed an English based orienteering club recommending Parkdean Nairn Lochloy as potential accommodation for competitors in the 2013 Scottish 6-day orienteering event. The website for this competition shows some of the action will take place very close to Nairn. There is a link to Visit Higlands.com/moray on the 6-day event page and also one to this is Moray. Maybe the organisers should make folk aware that there is also a large choice of accommodation just over the Moray border in Nairn. Maybe some of our tourism movers and shakers can influence that?
