The Highland Council are inviting parents, children and members of the public to attend a meeting next week to discuss the proposal to formally close Achfary Primary in NW Sutherland which has been “mothballed” since the summer of 2012. 

Achfary Primary is located in Reay Forest, on the A838 road. The school building at is accommodated within the village hall, which is itself leased by The Highland Council from the local estate. Since July 2012 local primary aged children have been attending either Kinlochbervie Primary School or Scourie Primary.

The meeting will be held at Achfary Primary School at 7pm on Tuesday 26 April and everyone in the community is welcome to come along and give their views.

Anyone unable to attend can still take part in the consultation by visiting the Council’s website where the Proposal Paper and associated documents are available from 

The consultation runs until Tuesday 24 May.
