Shetland - Northmavine Community Website
Northmavine Community Development Company (NCDC) is a registered charity in Scotland - Charity No SC039396 logo

Aims of the website

The Northmavine community website has been instigated by Initiative at the Edge.

"A project to benefit our community and let others experience the quality of life our community has to offer." Alan MacDonald.

  • to promote the area internally & externally

The Northmavine community website is for:

  • locals (commercial and non-commercial)

  • tourists/visitors

  • attracting new people to settle in the area

It is hoped that the website will give some idea of what we have to offer in Northmavine:

  • Magnificent scenery and wildlife

  • Excellent schools

  • Good health care and social needs support

  • A very good quality of life, virtually free of crime

  • Low cost housing

  • A strong and vibrant community

This is your community website so please contact us with any ideas for what you would like to see here, short articles you would like to provide, photographs, and also if you spot any errors or omissions! You can also let us know on the forum what you think of the website and any ideas you have.

This is by no means a comprehensive website on everything to do with Northmavine - but it's a start! It is hoped to update the website and add to it regularly, but it is dependant on community input and involvement. Please contact Maree if you would like to help with the website or have something of interest on 01806 544222 (NDC Office 9am-12pm weekdays), email: We hope to keep adding new things, so keep looking in!

It is also hoped that the Northmavine community website will develop into an interesting and useful resource for local residents, as well as prospective residents/visitors, ex-pats, etc.
