Rob Roy needs your help! The Rob Roy Preservation Trust reckon that £50,000 will be needed to keep Rob Roy "on the Rock".
The website is about to celebrate its' 15th Birthday!. The domain at www.culter.net was registered in 2001 to provide a web presence for Peterculter and Maryculter. The lands of Culter used to span both banks of the River Dee - at "Cul-Tir"- "the back of the land". This has been received well locally and from contacts and messages from all over the world. - This is especially true of our ex-pat Culter loons and quines who like to keep in touch with the news from "back home".
In 2002, due to the late Marjory Skinner, who was Secretary of the CCC at the time, the website was entered into the Calor Gas "Scottish Community of the Year" and won a commended award for "Community Enhancement through the Internet". This may be due to the campaign that year which was co-ordinated to "rescue" Rob Roy and immortalised in Allan Pennie's poem "The Battle of Culter 2002". The website was able to raise awareness of the campaign and drew the attention of many national newspapers and television. Who can forget the almighty "crack" when Rob was brought to the Heritage Centre and nearly broke his neck!
More recently, use has also been made of social media to be able to share some of the images and news from Culter.
You can access most of these with the buttons at the top right of the banner heading (next to contact us).Here you can find videos on YOUTUBE, read current posts on FACEBOOK and be "tweeted" on TWITTER. Some images from the extensive collection at the Heritage Centre can also be found at www.flickr.com/culterheritagetrust.
Many thanks for all your help and comments over the past 15 years.
