Other Community Developments

The Dingwall community is an active, vibrant one, and there are also other local people working hard to make the town and nearby a better place to live and work. While not directly affiliated with these groups, DCDC is pleased to share the following information about these projects in our area. If you have questions about any of their activities, or wish to support their endeavours, please contact the individual groups directly.

The Peffery Way Association

This group is actively working towards creating an all ability, low level foot and cycle path link between Dingwall and Strathpeffer, and the communities in between. The path will avoid crossing the road, railway and steep hills. Find out lots more here.

Dingwall Community Woodland

In the early part of 2023, local people planted over 7000 trees in a field to the west of the town, to create a 25-acre native woodland for community use and environmental benefit. The trees now need to become established, but meantime an outline of the project and ongoing developments can be seen here.

Dingwall Yarn Bombers

This small group just keep making seasonal yarn creations to brighten up the town! Their clever and colourful designs can be seen throughout the town centre on everything from bollards to bikes, hotels and post boxes. Have fun discovering them year round. More details on this group can be found here.



James' Bridge

James' Bridge

Opened in December 2019, James’ Bridge was built by a Dingwall family in memory of their son, a young man who loved to walk by the canal. A huge effort by many, this bridge is of and for the community and the circular walk it enables is there for all to enjoy. The story can be seen here.
