Making the Muir of Ord Stand Out



We want to share our vision with you about what this award really means for our project, Making the Muir of Ord Stand Out. 

The construction of the new Muir Hub and the new bridge is well underway and the refurbishment of the Village Hall begins soon.  Until now, we did not have the funds to give the same care and attention to our outdoor spaces.  This award from Tesco could not have come at a better time.

Here is some of what you will see – please vote for us to win the top prize and enable us to do more:

  • Planters and plants to mark each of the Muir of Ord’s four entrances
  • Signage, a noticeboard, new fencing, gate and landscaping for the Village Hall
  • A bench to provide a rest point between Urray House and the Village Square
  • An outdoor event which will celebrate the transformation of the Muir of Ord’s boundaries and buildings

Here is the ‘before’ – the sign between Beauly and Muir of Ord

Please vote for us in-store from 26 September to 9 October, at Tesco stores in Dingwall, Tain and Ullapool, using the token you receive at the checkout.
