Fernaig Community Trust

The Fernaig Community Trust was set up to give the local community access to land, and to involve the community in decision-making concerning the land in this area, creating economic, educational, recreational and environmental benefits, for people resident and visiting.

The villages of Achmore and Strome Ferry, together with a few scattered groups of houses, form a discrete and well defined community of about 150 people. It is a fast-growing community, with a high percentage of the population under 18 years. Despite this, the range and quality of facilities available for all groups remains small. There is no school, shop, post-office or other facility within seven miles of the village, the only public building is the village hall, which was renovated in 2000. Employment tends to be centred away from the area and connected with support services, education and fishing as well as tourism, notably B&B. There is also agriculture; two small farms and two crofts. The bulk of the land is owned by the Forestry Commission, or private estates.
