Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust

Colintraive and Glendaruel Development Trust (CGDT) were incorporated in 2008 as a Company Limited by Guarantee with Charitable Status and have a membership of over 170 members.

Mission statement states:

The purpose of the CGDT is to work with, and for, the community to identify projects and activities which will improve access to, and provision of, facilities, amenities and services for employment, education, health and recreation. The CGDT will do this while maintaining the benefits of living in the area such as safety, tranquility and community spirit.

Nestling in the Cowal peninsula in rural Argyll, Colintraive and Glendaruel are easily accessible from a range of west coast locations and are linked by ferry crossing to the Isle of Bute. Wildlife abounds with red and roe deer commonly sighted in the Glen and golden eagles are frequent visitors. The famous Kyles of Bute, a narrow sea channel separating the north end of the Isle of Bute from the Cowal peninsula, is designated as a National Scenic Area and a popular destination for sailing enthusiasts.

The villages of Colintraive and Glendaruel, known jointly as Col-Glen, are 10 miles apart and have a total adult population of circa 250, with a reasonably equal split between the two villages. Historically, both communities had local services and community facilities which, to a large extent, divorced the two communities. Diminishing resident populations, particularly young families, has resulted in the deterioration of local facilities and services. The Development Trust has been established to engender a cohesive approach to developing the social, economic and cultural base of the area
