A Social group for LBTI women in the Highlands

A- A A+

Welcome to Highland Hearts

Highland Hearts is a social group for LBTI (Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex) women based in the Inverness area.

We have two or three events each month, an evening dinner, a brunch at Cantraybridge college, and a walk somewhere. The evening dinner and walk are held in different places just to make things interesting.

If you would like to contact us, please use the Contact Us form.

If you would like to be emailed (as BCC) with upcoming events, and other occasional information that may be of interest, please 'Create an account' at the bottom of the page.

The tartan used for the background is the earliest LGBT tartan to be designed (shown below). It was registered before the founding of the Scottish Register of Tartans in 2009.

This tartan was designed in 2000 by Ronnie Hek, a fashion and gift design company run by an English husband and wife team living in the Scottish Borders. They specialise in designing tartan accessories and clan crest jewellery. They design new tartans to order and place them on the official new Register.

This tartan caused quite some controversy when it was first registered as number 2647 with the old Scottish Tartan Society. Some members of the society objected to any tartan being designed for the LGBT community. Some heated discussion went on after the Scottish media heard about the fuss, and it ended with the Scottish Tartan Society claiming Ronnie Hek tricked them into registering the tartan.
