Welcome to my website

Thank you for visiting my website. The main purpose of this site is to keep the people of Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross up to date with what I am doing as their MP and to give them the opportunity to get in touch and let me know their views.

Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross has fantastic coast lines and beautiful scenery but being one of the largest and most remote constituencies in the UK is not without its challenges! I work closely with my colleagues to make sure the Far North has a strong voice at every level of Government and to make sure our area's particular needs are heard.

On my website you can read the latest news about my work at Westminster, on the Treasury Select Committee and in the constituency, you can also find details of my latest advice surgeries.

If you are not a constituent, please feel free to take a look around and learn more about some of the issues that matter most to people in the Far North. If you like what you see, why not come and pay us a visit?

If you cannot find the information you require, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best regards,

    "Kintyre House is an outstanding example of a well-run care home. Every time I visit the residents tell me unprompted how well they are looked after. National Care Homes Open Day helps to raise awareness of the brilliant job done by so many carers and I was delighted to be able to take part in the events to highlight the importance of the work being undertaken and to raise awareness of care provision in our society".
