In the Gaelic language the word Clachan means a hamlet or settlement, and Clachans can be found in several locations around Scotland.
Our Clachan is situated on the western edge of the County of Argyll, facing the Atlantic ocean and the Hebridean islands of Jura, Islay and Gigha. Being a peninsula it has an abundance of coastline, beaches and marine life.
The village and the outlying homes have created a community of roughly one hundred and forty people, of all ages. We have a primary school, a kirk, a shop and filling station with a part-time post office. In the heart of the village a community hall is being created in a charming building that was was originally a Free Church
