Appin is vibrant, caring and welcoming. Being 20 miles distant from the nearest town, Oban, its people value cohesion and are truly resilient and self-supporting in many aspects of remote rural life.
The key community organisations, such as the Church, Community Council, the community’s two charitable trusts and many other groups all work closely together, alongside local businesses, for community good.
Appin hosts a healthy number of local businesses - long established and new. With the Appin.scot local business directory it's easy to get in touch.
Appin Community Development Trust is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), uniquely able to provide services and manage assets and infrastructure on behalf of the people who live and work in Appin.
The Trust is passionate about building community cohesion and resilience and meeting the challenges of being remote and rural. It is owned by its membership – you can join if you are a resident.
