Tolkien epic inspires Rivendell garden centre name

By SPP Reporter


A NEW garden centre opens in Caithness today (Saturday) at the site of a former eyesore.

Father-and-son team Glyn and Benjamin Salisbury have transformed the dilapidated site of the former Lochshell Filling Station near Wick into a new business venture.

Named Rivendell – after the scenic Elven outpost in the JRR Tolkien epic Lord of the Rings – the site features a garden centre, a café, a farm shop and crafts for sale.

Glyn and Benjamin have been working tirelessly on a very small budget to get the centre open and the pair view it as a work in progress.

The opening will be at midday and anybody that turns up will have their name entered into a bag, with the drawn name getting to officially open the site.
