Our Clachan

In the Gaelic language the word Clachan means a hamlet or village.

Our Clachan is in Kintyre, where West Loch Tarbert joins the Sound of Jura on the west coast of Scotland. Across the water lie the Hebridean Isles of Gigha, Islay and Jura, steeped in history, romance and spectacular scenery. In Clachan we have a thriving community, with a primary school, kirk, shop and filling station, post office and a village hall. We offer the visitor a choice of guest-houses or self-catering accommodation, with hotels not far away. Walkers can enjoy the outdoor life along the Kintyre Way, from Tarbert to the Mull of Kintyre. The several ways of reaching Kintyre, by road, sea or sky, will be found on the page headed Tourism

At the heart of the community is the village hall, which is used for a multitude of functions and meetings, from the contemplative T’ai Chi to the lively traditional ceilidhs. The building has served us well since the 1950s, but now needs a major overhaul or rebuilding. Our own fundraising activities have produced a substantial sum, which is steadily increasing. The present target of £25,000 would enable us to apply to organisations that provide grants to help community projects such as this. All contributions, whether large or small, will help us to reach the target and would be greatly appreciated. To learn more please visit The Hall page to see how you may help.
