WELCOME TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF EAST SUTHERLAND
Our members are particularly fortunate to live in what is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland and we offer you a warm welcome to our web pages and true Highland Hospitality & Fellowship should you decide to visit us. We are one of 88 Rotary Clubs in the north of Scotland and one of the over 3000 Rotary Clubs worldwide. A short video about Rotary International can be viewed HERE.
Sutherland is one of the largest counties in the UK stretching from the North west coast to the Dornoch Firth with dramatic coastline and miles of stunning beaches. It has a population of just over 12,000 people and around 250,000 sheep!! The Rotary Club of East Sutherland represents the coastal towns and villages of Bonar Bridge, Dornoch, Golspie, (Golspie Facebook) Brora, Helmsdale, Lairg and Rogart plus their hinterland. These communities have a rich history:
Bonar Bridge not just for a stunning bridge but also for excellent salmon fishing.
The Royal Burgh of Dornoch as a cathedral town and the county capitol as well as having one of the top 10 golf courses in the world. It also has silver sands that stretch for miles and is an excellent base for touring the area.
Brora, once a busy harbour town with the most northerly coal mine in Europe and a world renowned woollen mill, is home to the much sought after Clynelish whisky.
All are also home to many hotels and apartments which host the travelling golfers who return to play the excellent courses available in these locations.
The Rotary Club of East Sutherland is 26 years of age and while it is a small ( but we like to think a perfectly formed) club with 33 members and 2 honorary members it is a busy, enthusiastic and very successful wee club which is committed to Service Above Self and to supporting all the Rotary avenues of service. Use the 'What We Do' tab to see the variety of ways we get involved in our local, national and international COMMUNITIES.
But why tell you too much, when you know we are part of the larger family of Rotary the World Over and you can visit us at 6 for 6.30 any Wednesday at our meeting venues shown on the right of this page. Visit us soon in real time and in a real place not just on these virtual pages.
