As a thank you to the contributors to the Highland Weather & Climate Story Map, we are running a prize draw with two exciting prize options. Keep reading to learn more about what you could win!

How do I enter? After filling out the Highland Weather and Climate Story Map or Extended Survey, you will be asked to select your communication preferences on a page titled “Keep in the loop.” Check the box next to “Prize Draw” if you would like your submissions to be included. You will only be asked to submit your communication preferences once but up to five different story or survey submissions per contributor will be considered as entries.

What’s the deadline? The prize draw closes on September 30, 2023.

What’s the prize? Two lucky winners will be randomly selected. Each winner will have the option to choose a £75 gift certificate to either the Darach Social Croft or The Highland Weigh.

The Highland Weigh The Highland Weigh is a social enterprise formed in January 2022 to give Highlanders the opportunity to reduce the amount of plastic they use, reduce food waste and shop locally. The Highland Weigh has chosen 30 core products to sell at a reduced price so it doesn’t have to be a choice between affordability and plastic-free. If a prize draw winner chooses a gift certificate to the Highland Weigh, they can order from the shop’s online shop, or visit the store and cafe at 3B High Street Nairn IV12 4AG.
Darach Social Croft Darach Social Croft is located just above Strontian on the shores of Loch Sunart in Lochaber. The croft is dedicated to providing a place where people can come and experience the outdoors, spend time with the animals, learn new skills and find out more about crofting. If a prize draw winner chooses a gift certificate to the Darach Social Croft, they can order from the croft’s online shop, or visit the croft and redeem their gift certificate for one guided forest bathing walk. For your forest bathing walk, you will be invited to bring along up to four other people and as many dogs as you wish to bring (within reason!). These guided walks are usually held in the Ardery Woods, the Ariundle Woodlands, Phemie’s Trail in Strontian or the Strontian Community Woodland.
