Wild day…

March 28, 2010 · Filed Under Nairn 

Been quite a day with the wildlife today, as we spent time with relatives up the Morayshire coast: 1. I’ve got a hoodie problem – more specifically, a hooded crow who keeps landing on the car and pecking the windscreen wipers. It’s pecked off chunks at the back of the blades, and pulled off part […]

Wind Farms: the battle Lines are drawn

March 26, 2010 · Filed Under Development, Inverness, Nature, Politics 

The battle lines for the latest wind farms in the Highlands are being drawn, with an application for one south of Inverness recommended for approval, but councillors who object being forbidden to speak out. We also have a development on Dava Moor still in the planning stages, and the owners of nearby land certainly don’t […]

Hugh McBean’s First Class Walking Guide: Nairn

March 26, 2010 · Filed Under Nairn, Tourist 

Many will probably have seen Hugh McBean’s walking video covering Nairn and Cawdor previously on the Gurn, but it’s definitely worth giving Hugh McBean’s walking video further attention: When I set up MyNairn.com I had originall envisaged taking a number of videos of Nairn and its people and setting them up on the site – […]

Time for one community council in Nairn?

March 17, 2010 · Filed Under Nairn, Politics 

The Gurn is pushing harder on the issue of a single Nairn community council, and has launched a new blog to focus on the issue and develop the arguments: Time for a single community council for Nairn!. Graisg makes an attempt to be fair by providing an “against” argument, but I’m not convinced there is […]

Joe gets things done!

March 12, 2010 · Filed Under Nairn, Nature 

The photo exhibition of Joe’s photos on the swans is still available to view outside of the library – didn’t actually get to stop and enjoy it until yesterday, and certainly worth a look before it finishes on Monday. In the meantime, though, he’s been keeping busy – by getting the HC to be busy […]

How many empty buildings does the HC have?

March 12, 2010 · Filed Under Business 

I’ve spoken to the HC previously about the availability of office space in Nairn, and it was stated then that as health workers are moved to the new extended hospital complex, office space was being vacated in the West End of Nairn. Today I happened across Iain Fairweather in the high street after viewing a […]

Researching Property Prices in Nairn

March 9, 2010 · Filed Under Business, Development, Nairn 

I’ve been doing some research into property prices in Nairn over the past week, after finding Net House Prices actually provides sale price information on property without having to sign up. What I found interesting is that there are a couple of properties on Osprey Crescent on the Lochloy development that have been sold four […]

Fake blog comments

March 9, 2010 · Filed Under Nairn 

Noticed lasted night that someone has been posting fake comments at the Gurn pretending to be me. I normally sign comments with a: – Brian at the end. However, someone else has been doing so, usually to post something intended to read as unpopular. It’s pretty sad, really, that in the world we live and […]
