Please come and join us, and dedicate the Boardwalk to Eleanor.

We are pleased to share details of the two fun runs we are putting on this year.

The first is the Rousay 'Peedie Lap', a 5km fun run on the 25th June.  Online entry and details are available here.

The longer 'Rousay Lap' is our half marathon length fun run on the 26th August.  Details and booking available here.

Both of the events are open to walkers, runners and cyclists - we just want people out and enjoying the wonderful island!  Entry is free, but we encourage donations, and the surplus gets doistributed to groups and organisations active on three islands.

Online entry is optional (and new this year) but it would help us enormously on the day if people could pre-register!

We are also looking for volunteers to come and help marshall and help with the on the day admin. (Please email/call if you can help).

Help us to Help You

The Trust is holding a community event on 24th/25th March, to help get community involvement in creating a new Development Plan that will take the trust forward for the next 5 years.  The process is being funded by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and involves experienced consultants working with the Directors and Staff of REWDT to help progress the plans.

The Plan will provide guidance for the trust, but is also a fundamental document required by many funders when it comes to social investment in the Trust.  It’s vital that we have community engagement in the process, hence the need for the ‘Roadshow’.

The development of the new plan is also timely, as it coincides with the recruitment of a new Trust Manager, Stuart Williams, who will lead the planning form the REWDT side.

The ‘drop in’ events are being held over two days, and there are three sessions available.
  • Friday 24th March – 6pm-8pm
  • Saturday 25th March – 10am-12pm
  • Saturday 25th March - 2pm-4pm

Each of the timeslots will be an interactive session, with REWDT staff and directors on hand to update on progress of projects and facilitate feedback. Please allow one hour to fully engage with the session (e.g if you book on the 10-12 slot then the latest you should arrive would be 11am).  You only need to attend one session (they will all be the same) and refreshments will be provided.

Booking is encouraged either by emailing or online at  or call us on 821229.  Numbers will be limited per session.

For those travelling from Egilsay & Wyre, transport will be provided and ferry costs covered.  If you need road transport to the venue, please let us know.
