Schools Resources

During 2016 and 2017, the Trust implemented a very successful activities programme, including much engagement with Resolis, Cromarty and Tore Primary Schools, and Fortrose, Invergordon and Alness Academies. Kirkmichael and Cullicudden present a wealth of learning opportunities for schools, and we set out below some of the material we found most useful for school activities.
