Achiltibuie is a long linear village in Ross and Cromarty, Highland, on the Coigach coast of northwestern Scotland, overlooking Badentarbet Bay to the west. Loch Broom and the Summer Isles lie to the south. Located 10 miles northwest of Ullapool as the crow flies. Achiltibuie is the central community of a series of townships and communities stretching from Culnacraig, through Badenscallie and Polglass and Reiff to Achnahaird; the first post office in the village opened on 28 July 1884. For a time the Summer Isles Smokehouse attracted visitors. In 2013 the community had hopes to re-establish the business; the Hydroponicum, a facility for growing fresh fruit and vegetables indoors using hydroponics, was built in the village in the 1980s by Robert Irvine owner of the Summer Isles Hotel. The Hydroponicum was known for growing exotic fruit such as bananas all year round, it attracted up to 10,000 visitors a year until it was sold in 2007 to a company based in the Isle of Man. New greenhouses have since been built apart from the original hydroponicum buildings, the new owners continue to grow fruit and vegetables for local businesses and residents.

A community buyout attempt in 2011 by the Coigach Community Development Company fell through when the site's sellers pulled out. The building has now been demolished; some of the former staff of the Hydroponicum run a small-scale activity known as The Achiltibuie Garden, situated nearby. Tom Longstaff, mountaineer.

List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Tyne and Wear

There are 37 Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Tyne and Wear, England. In England, the body responsible for designating SSSIs is Natural England, which chooses sites because of their flora, geological or physiographical features. Natural England took over the role of designating and managing SSSIs from English Nature in October 2006 when it was formed from the amalgamation of English Nature, parts of the Countryside Agency and the Rural Development Service. Natural England, like its predecessor, uses the 1974–1996 county system with each area being called an Area of Search. Tyne and Wear is made up of five administrative local authorities consisting of the two largest cities in the region: Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sunderland, thus making it the sixth largest conurbation in the United Kingdom. Tyne and Wear shares its borders with Northumberland and County Durham, to the north and south respectively. A Data rounded to one decimal place. B Grid reference is based on the British national grid reference system known as OSGB36, is the system used by the Ordnance Survey.

C Those SSSIs with more than one OS grid reference are composed of multiple sections, separated by non-SSSI land

Temple Lot

The Temple Lot, located in Independence, Jackson County, Missouri, is the first site to be dedicated for the construction of a temple in the Latter Day Saint movement. The area was dedicated on Wednesday, August 3, 1831 by the movement's founder, Joseph Smith, Jr. and purchased on December 19, 1831 by his colleague Edward Partridge to be the center of the New Jerusalem or "City of Zion" after he received a revelation stating that it would be the gathering spot of the Saints during the Last Days. The most prominent 2.5-acre section of the Temple Lot is an open, grass-covered field occupied in its northeast corner by a few trees and the headquarters of the Church of Christ, not considered a temple by adherents of that sect. No other structures exist on the 2.5-acre section, although numerous important structures exist on the 63.5-acre section, such as the United Nations Peace Plaza, the Community of Christ Auditorium, the Truman Railroad Depot, the LDS Visitors Center, the Community of Christ Temple, an LDS Church stake center, the Six Nations Tree of Peace.

The city of Independence, Missouri became important to the Latter Day Saint movement starting in the autumn of 1830, only a few months after the religion was incorporated in the state of New York in April 1830. The movement's founder, Joseph Smith, had said he had received revelations designating this city as the "Center Place" of "Zion", many early adherents believed that the Garden of Eden had been located there—including LDS Church leaders Brigham Young and Heber C. Kimball, who said he was told this by Joseph Smith. Alexander Majors, a sixteen-year-old resident of Independence in 1831, wrote in his memoirs: Nothing of great note occurred in the county of Jackson, after the cyclone of 1826, until the year 1830, when five Mormon elders made their appearance in the county and commenced preaching, stating to their audiences that they were chosen by the priesthood, organized by the prophet Joseph Smith... They selected a place near Independence, Jackson County, Mo. in the early part of the year 1831 which they named Temple Lot, a beautiful spot of ground on a high eminence.

They there stuck down their Jacob's staff, as they called it, said: "This spot is the center of the earth. This is the place where the Garden of Eden, in which Adam and Eve resided, was located, we are sent here according to the directions of the angel that appeared to our prophet, Joseph Smith, told him this is the spot of ground on which the New Jerusalem is to be built, when finished, Christ Jesus is to make his reappearance and dwell in this city of New Jerusalem with the saints for a thousand years, at the end of which time there will be a new deal with reference to the nations of the earth, the final wind-up of the career of the human family." However, since Smith never issued an official revelation to the effect that Independence and the Temple Lot were the site of the Garden of Eden, Latter Day Saints traditionally do not formally accept this claim as doctrine. While Smith issued a revelation indicating a spot named Adam-ondi-Ahman as the place Adam and Eve went to after being expelled from the Garden, he never confirmed or denied the idea that Independence had been the location of Eden itself.

Although Smith had designated the Temple Lot site as the heart of his new City of Zion, the Latter Day Saints were expelled from Jackson County and from Missouri before a temple could be constructed. Ownership of the property became the subject of court challenges among some sects of the Latter Day Saint movement that arose from the succession crisis following Smith's assassination, most notably between the Church of Christ and the Community of Christ known as the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. In 1891 the Reorganized Church, founded by Smith's son Joseph Smith III, sued in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri to take possession of the property, it lost in the United States Court of Appeals. The United States Supreme Court refused to review the case; the Temple Lot is owned by the small Church of Christ, which acquired the land in 1867. This organization made a failed effort in 1929 to build a temple of its own on the property, which represents to date the only attempt to erect such a structure since the time of Joseph Smith.

This body has its headquarters on the site, which has twice been damaged by arson attacks. The Temple Lot church has insisted since about 1976 that it will not cooperate with other Latter Day Saint or Christian denominations in building a temple, nor will it sell the Lot, regardless of any price that might conceivably be offered; some members of other Latter Day Saint groups have described the Temple Lot church as "'squatters' on the location," but that organization steadfastly defends its right to possess the property as its physical and spiritual "custodian". The Community of Christ, the second-largest church within the modern Latter Day Saint movement, now owns the bulk of the original 63 acre property around the Temple Lot referred to as the greater Temple Lot; this land had been purchased in the 1830s by Latter Day Saint bishop Edward Partridge to be the central common and sacred area according to the Plat of Zion. It maintains its world headquarters in this area, opening its Auditorium to the south of the Lot in 1958, while in 1994 it dedicated its Independence Temple just t
