Jubilee beacon lights up East Lomond
Thursday, August 9, 2012
East Lomond helped light the way for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The Fife hill was one of a series of Scottish sites hand-picked to play a part in the extra-special celebrations, and guests took part in a torchlight procession before climbing from Falkland to the summit for the beacon lighting ceremony.
They were also treated to three fire sculptures in the shape of a volcano, a miner’s map and a leaf chosen by the local community to represent what the Lomond Hills means to them.
The Living Lomonds Landscape Partnership (LLLP) – which aims to reconnect people with the Lomond and Benarty Hills, conserve the area’s natural and cultural heritage and involve communities in training and volunteering activities – took the opportunity to tell people about plans for the development of the Lomond Hills and Benarty Hill area.
LLLP has received support from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop their landscape conservation initiative, known as the Living Lomonds project, in consultation with local communities, organisations and people who live and work in and around the area.
The member organisations include Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, Falkland Centre for Stewardship, Kinross Museum Trust, Markinch Heritage Group, Benarty Community Forum, Lomond Hills Regional park partnership and TRACKS (The Rural Access Committee for Kinross-shire).
