About Us

The Isle of Luing Community Trust was established in May 2005. It is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee.  It is led by Luing residents who make up the Board of Directors.

The company’s main purpose is the sustainable development of the island of Luing. This includes provision and access to recreational facilities and events; advancing education in Luing history and heritage; community development including rural regeneration; and to improve opportunities locally for training and employment and advance environmental protection.

We own and run The Atlantic Islands Centre, a visitor & community centre, as well as the public moorings near Cullipool. 

We are currently exploring the feasability of a community owned small-scale slate project in Cullipool on Luing. Early proposal can be found here 'Luing Slate Circular Economy Project' . Questions raised by some Cullipool residents at community consultation on 4th of September 2021 together with answers can be found here 'Luing Slate Q&A
