Community and School Play Park

Thanks to an amazing effort by the community this project to buy a piece of land adjacent to the school and equip it as a play/recreation area is going ahead.. Click here for details of the project.

Craignish Glebe

C3 has decided not to pursue this project. The General Trustees of the Church of Scotland want £170,000 for the site and it was felt that it would be difficult to raise this in light of the effort that has gone into raising the money for 'Rosemary's Plot'.

Invasive Species - Japanese Knotweed

A number of members of the community have expressed concern about the impact of Japanese Knotweed and the very detrimental effect it has on the landscape and our native ecology. C3 has explored funding, training in control techniques and is now identifying sites and liasing with landowners in order to progress with a multi year programme of elimination on the Craignish Peninsula.

First Responder Scheme

C3 is acting as the co-ordinator for the First Responder Scheme which will see a team of trained volunteers able to respond to medical emergencies with access to a defibrillator, until such time as professional help has arrived. For further details contact Paul Mills

Tern Raft Project

In spite of an extensive programme of mink trapping, the common tern population in Loch Craignish has almost been wiped out by these predators. Following a successful trial in Loch Creran, it was decided to build a mink-proof raft for nesting terns off Eiln. Inshaig. !Thanks to a team of volunteers led by Ali MacLeod the raft is now in place and the first terns are awaited.

C3 is very grateful to Sea-ChangersScottish Natural Heritage and Ardfern Yacht Centre which are all supporting the project either financially or in kind. For further details please contact Jan.

Galley Land

Under the Community Right to Buy legislation, C3 has successfully registered an interest in the piece of land in front of the Galley of Lorne, which is the subject of a planning application by the owner. In the past this bit of land has been used by the community for various activities including football and the siting of a marquee for community events. Now that the registration has been accepted it means that if the land is ever put on the market, the community would have the option to buy it at an agreed valuation.

Community Broadband

Work on bringing high speed Broadband to Craignish is proceeding, albeit more slowly than had been anticipated! If you would like to know more about it please contact Merlyn Edwards

Craignish Primary School

Rory Day of the Parent Council is now representing Craignish Primary School on the C3 Board.

Craignish Boat Jumble and Car Boot Sale

The 2017 Boat Jumble and Car Boot Sale was held in Craignish Village Hall and car park on Saturday March 25th. Proceeds from the Boat Jumble cover C3's annual revenue costs. Thanks to everyone who helped.

Craignish Boat Club

C3 is working with Craignish Boat Club (CBC) to acquire funding for a small RIB. This will be used to teach the cadet members of the Club powerboating, safety and seamanship skills.

A sailing club in Southampton has offered CBC a little used 4.5m RIB plus outboard and trailer for a special price of £2,000. The Club will put £250 towards this and has submitted an application to The Craignish Trust for the remainder. Anyone who would like to donate towards this project please contact Mark Holroyd.
