  1. Our year in review

  2. In March, we announced our intention to put forward a fresh set of proposals for a new £4 million care home in Fortrose. A packed meeting attracted over 120 villagers, with the vast majority backing our plans.
  3. In May, we started work on our new £4.5 million care home in Grantown due to open in Spring 2018. This project marks a welcome return to Grantown for Parklands, which previously operated the Mount Barker care facility in the town.

  7. In June, members of Fortrose and Rosemarkie Community Council gave their backing for our planned Fortrose care home. The support of the Community Council, and many other local stakeholders, was to prove decisive later in the year.
  8. We also unveiled the first images of the stunning interior of the new care home.
  9. In July, we were delighted to welcome HRH The Princess Royal to Urray House in Muir of Ord. Her Royal Highness spent an hour meeting residents and staff and even oversaw a game of boccia between residents and pupils from nearby Tarradale Primary.

  12. In September, we opened new extensions to Urray House, Muir of Ord, and Innis Mhor in Tain. Opened in 2014 with 34 beds, both facilities were expanded with a further six bedrooms each, at a combined cost of £1 million. The success of both care homes highlights the soaring demand for quality care for older people in the Highlands.

  14. In October, Highland Councillors unanimously supported our plans for a new care home in Fortrose. The decision came after months of campaigning by local residents, care groups including Black Isle Carers and Highland Senior Citizens Network, and local politicians. Work on the new £4 million facility is expected to start in 2018.
