A gardening group was the first of the Strathpeffer Initiative's projects to hit the ground when they took delivery of new planters, hanging baskets and benches.
Led by Karen Evans and Alison Munro, Strathpeffer Gardening Group - a band of hardy volunteers - braved the rain and cold to fill the planters and hanging baskets.
Said Karen, "It's been a long gestation period, getting the ideas from the community and then fundraising, but it's so good to see the planters and seats out in the Square - they really make a difference."
Strathpeffer Spa Golf Club was founded in 1888. One of the original course designers was "the grand old man of golf" Tom Morris of St Andrews. In more recent times Peter Allis has described the course as a jewel in the Highlands of Scotland.
The panoramic views down the Peffery valley to the Black Isle and from the upper end of the golf course, westward to the Fannich hills highlight the natural beauty of the Scottish countryside. It is arguably the most scenic golf course in the North of Scotland, a view regularly confirmed by visitors from around the world.
The club has regular opens, matches against other clubs and an active junior section. Visitors are very welcome and clubs can be hired.
Of course, when the grand shots have been played and the tricky putts holed one can reflect on them in the informal and friendly atmosphere of the clubhouse whilst enjoying traditional highland hospitality. The clubhouse has an excellent shop, a bar and food.

The Strathpuffer24 is an annual event that takes place every January.
The Strathpuffer started in 2005. It was meant to be a one off local event but somehow twelve years later we have a national event with a legendary status. It is one of the most challenging mountain bike events in the world and is a fantastic annual event in the midst of the Strathpeffer winter.
Over the years we have had every possible type of weather conditions - gales that blew away our marquee, iced roads, 2ft of snow the week before the event, temperatures down to minus 10 degrees, rain, hail and even sunshine... you get the picture but then if we insist on staging a 24 hour event in the Highlands of Scotland in the middle of winter what do we expect?
We now attract competitors from all over the world - probably because we were included in the US Bike magazines top 10 toughest Mountain Bike events on the planet - and we are widely recognised as the event every decent mountain biker needs on his palmares.
In 2009 we launched The Puffer Lite to give riders chance to enjoy the wonderful trails we have around here in summer conditions. The Lite is a far more chilled affair, being only a 12 hour sprint in conditions more conducive to cycling than those normally experienced in January. We have found that riders lap on average 10 mins quicker in the Puffer Lite than in the Strathpuffer.
