Breaking news: Coul Links has been saved from development!
This beautiful, wild stretch of coastline is an important habitat for rare and endangered plants and animals. It’s so important for wildlife that it has three distinct levels of protection and was previously managed by the Trust as a wildlife reserve.
A detailed public inquiry regarding Coul Links took place in early 2019. Experts including our former Chief Executive Jonny Hughes gave evidence on the serious harm that would be done to an internationally important wild place.
On 21 February 2020 the Scottish Government announced that the plans were refused due to the unacceptable impact on the natural heritage value of Coul Links.
