Our third birthday
So, the Easter holidays are almost here. Besides being an important date in the religious calendar and a time of high risk for chocolate eggs, it also offers many hard-working people in the LGBTQ+ communities four beautiful pink days from the daily grind, with two public holidays in the UK, Friday 7 to Monday 10 April, as in many countries. So we wish you a great long weekend!
This month’s newsletter also marks three years of editions since we at PinkUk Towers issued our first humble newsletter in May 2020 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic and all the uncertainty that came with it. A time when LGBTQ+ run community groups, businesses or those serving our communities were being shut down for what eventually was a series of relatively long lock-downs across the UK for around two years. We started this newsletter to help promote the voice of business and community groups and others. So we hope it helped. Please let us know.
Pride festivals recorded globally To the present: the number of prides is 631 already this year, which is a record for this time of year. As you will have seen above, we also feature a great pride festival: Lille Pride, obviously in Lille, northern France, from 25 May to 4 Jun 2023. The UK sees Bury Pride, Lancashire, 29 – 30 April for those who enjoy and wish to support local pride festivals in the UK, more on Bury Pride below.
The venue we feature this month is the Highland Club, a four-star development of self-catering apartments, equally obviously in Scotland, more below.

|We should pay tribute to gay icon Paul O’Grady who passed away this week. Paul was famous for his role as no nonsense cabaret drag queen Lily Savage and later celebrity chat show host. He also stood up to the police when they raided London’s Royal Vauxhall Tavern bar in 1987 at the height of public paranoia during the HIV/AIDS epidemic.|

Featured venue: The Highland Club, Loch Ness, Scotland
The Highland Club, Fort Augustus is a stunning four-star resort of self-catering apartments converted from a fort, monastery and an abbey.
If you’re looking for a great remote get away in the UK but with home comforts, this is one of the best. Set on a 20-acre estate in the heart of the Scottish Highlands by Loch Ness, it isn’t just for those who are hoping to sight the Loch’s (lake’s) fabled sea monster, Nessie.
You can enjoy superb accommodation in a more comfortable style than the monks who used to live there. May-be sample the local Scotch whiskey, if that’s to your liking. The converted monastery offers great facilities including ‘The Chapel’ indoor swimming pool.
There’s eateries and shops within walking distance in Fort Augustus. If you want to experience the beauty and tranquillity of the Scottish Highlands in self-catering mode, you can’t do better than this.
