Colin Fulcher, Project Officer, Rothesay Townscape Heritage

How does your role with the council help people across Argyll and Bute?

As Project Officer for Rothesay Townscape Heritage, I play an important part in the regeneration of Rothesay. Making it a better place to live, work and for those within the wider area of Argyll and Bute, to come and visit us.

Describe your view just now?

It’s a lovely day, looking out across Rothesay Bay a classic postcard view. The water is calm and I can see the hills over in Cowal. Having previously worked in London, I never fail to appreciate how lucky I am to work and have a view like this.

How long have you worked for the council?

 I joined the Council in November 2008, over 12 years ago.

Best thing about working with your team?

They are a great team, you can pick up the phone at any time for help or a chat. We all work with a similar goal in mind, to make our respective areas better for everyone to enjoy.

How do you relax?

Usually by twisting a corkscrew on the top of a fine bottle of red! Most other times, it’s by getting out and about in the open with my wife and kids. Living in Argyll and Bute, we’re spoilt for choice for places to visit. From beaches to forest to towns and lochs, there’s something for everyone.

Favourite place to visit in Argyll and Bute?

It has to be Inveraray and Cairndow. There is so much character within Inveraray and the shop owners and other businesses are always so friendly and welcoming. Though a trip to Inveraray is never complete without stopping off at Cairndow and Loch Fyne for some tasty treats!
