Hi everyone, I hope it is ok for me to post this in this group. I am from Lochaline but I am currently up in Orkney trying to do my dissertation to finish my Masters Degree in Renewable Energy Development. I am investigating whether a low carbon ferry (either fully electric or hydrogen-fuelled) could be a viable option for the Corran Ferry. I will compare this to a replacement that is the same as the current model or a fixed-link option. I am really keen that part of this project documents the opinions of the communities that this ferry serves. As you can imagine, this has all been slightly turned on its head with lockdown making coming home for interviews impossible. As a compromise, I’ve decided to resort to an online survey. If you consider this to be your permanent residence, then it would be a huge help if you could you please spare a little time to fill it in. There are 17 questions all of equal length and all tick boxes, then a section at the end for any comments you may have. Thank you for your help. Flora x
Now that Boating and Angling are allowed under this phase of the Scottish Governments CC19 response, the Sunart Moorings are open for locals to use and the Strontian Angling Club will be issuing Membership cards to enable local anglers to fish on Loch Doilet and in the rivers Strontian and Polloch. Tight lines!Boating, swimming and other sea-based activities are now allowed once again in Scotland under the new guidelines, but, please remember to respect the coastline.
Whether you’re local or not, whatever your ability or experience in your chosen sport or leisure activity, the sea can still catch you out and be unmerciful when it does.
The majority of beaches will not be lifeguarded. If you get into trouble call 999 and ask for the Coastguard and we will come to your aid. But coronavirus hasn’t gone away and we all need to follow the rules.
Remember your choices might put people, including yourself and frontline responders, at risk. Take extra care in these extraordinary times.

With lockdown preventing the opening of Oakwood things have been a little quiet. However we are delighted to say that Lara van de Peer the Dail Mhor Project Officer has been working alongside the Sunart Helping Hands team, helping organise local hot meals and other services. As part of this work we secured £8,500 towards the Covid19 Community Response which will help fund local lunches, IT assistance and the additional services from Ewen’s Room. Ardgour Community Council will also receive some funds. This support comes from the Scottish Government Supporting Communities Fund distributed by Highlands & islands Enterprise. A big thank you to the regular weekday hot meal drivers for Dail Mhor, Fiona, Elaine, Lara, Laura, Holly and Mary. ... See MoreSee Less
