Overview

Hollingwells were awarded funding by Highland LEADER for a project to further diversify their trekking business into equestrian tourism and training. The grant will be used to build an L-shaped stable block consisting of three stables and a storeroom, purchase a set of 8 jump competition course show jumps, as well as constructing an all-weather, rubber surfaced riding arena. The development will allow the business to offer a higher level of instruction all year round, to facilitate competitions, as well as providing a new facility previously unavailable in the area.
