Local organisations in the Appin area

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.
