Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust

Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust was established in August 2012 and is committed to instigating and delivering social, economic and environmental regeneration projects and local services. We are fully focused on improving the quality of life for the residents of Lochalsh and the visitors to our spectacular location on the west coast of Scotland. We aim to achieve the sustainable regeneration of our community which, despite its magnificent geographic setting, has been identified as one of the most economically fragile and deprived in the Highlands. We work to generate income through enterprise and the ownership of assets. As a charitable organisation, all of our trading surpluses are reinvested in the community.
