A Digital Scotland Action Project
Action Projects are community-driven initiatives to help realize an overall goal of Scotland becoming a world leading digital nation.
The Smart Village (Scotland) initiative was inspired through Kenny Higgins who has spent around 2 years researching and a further 2 years stimulating development ideas to enhance the village of Strathyre and its tourism appeal, which is so vital to the local economy of the village.
The entire process provided the essential components of a strategy that can be replicated in so many rural communities all over Scotland.
