Protecting World-class Environmental Assets

Promoting alternative benefits to communities

What is Not Coul?

A campaign group opposing proposed golf development within protected land at Coul Links in SE Sutherland.

Coul Links lies in a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), a Special Protection Area (SPA) and a Ramsar Site (Wetland of International Importance).

Created in 2016, we became famous for helping defeat an earlier golf proposal. That took 4 years. Thank you if you helped us win back then.

Not Coul is now opposing a new 2022 proposal which we consider will create even more serious environmental damage at Coul Links.

This 2022 golf plan is one of the most threatening to Nature in Scotland. Like the Trump course at Menie Links, it could lead to loss of part or all of an SSSI. And part of the SPA and Ramsar. We need help again, more so than 2016 to 2022.

There is no need for a golf course on protected land, there is ample space elsewhere, adjacent to the SSSI.
