Brechin has lots to offer

Brechin and Edzell has so much to offer tourists and visitors that is has become impossible to fit all the information on a paper pamphlet.

The City of Brechin and Area Partnership had been hoping to publish a welcome pack for the area this April. However, so much information has been gathered that it has been decided to expand the project to ensure that all the information can be presented.

Prior to Christmas the group had been gathering information from around the Brechin and Edzell ward area on accommodation, tourism activities ad businesses.

Once the information was collated, it was clear that there was a lot more than initially envisaged, and that to produce a leaflet from that may not be practical nor the best use of this information.

A spokesperson for the group said: “Due to the unexpected volume of information gathered and, after further discussions with the Partnership, it was realised that the project is much bigger than originally envisaged.

“Therefore the group is currently looking at other options, including a web-based facility.

“The Partnership would like to thank all for contributing to the gathering of information, which will be used in the project in the future.”

Grahame Lockhart, involved in gathering information for the pack, explained to members of the group at their Januray meeting that he felt the Pitlochry website, created by the Pitlochry Partnership, was a good example of a type of site that Brechin may benefit from, which is self managed and can hold all the relevant information, and be easily updated.

The Pitlochry website includes up-to-date information about culture and events in the area, things to do and where to eat, shop and sleep.

Also included on the website is a “what’s on” section focusing on events in their immediate area.
