Sunart Paths Network
Sunart Paths Network formed early 2017. The working group's mission is to improve and promote paths and trails in Sunart.   

In July 2017 the group were sucessful in an application to Paths for All for funding of £1,500 to improve three footpaths in Sunart. Longrigg Burn Path, the Path to Ardnastang beach and the Path from the Hotel to the Primary School. We organised several working party events which were a great success. We got lots of work done, and everyone had a great time. We were motivated and rewarded by fine baking and cups of tea! Thank you to everyone who helped!
We have many other projects in the pipeline, new improved leaflets and resources to show our extensive paths network, improvements to other paths, creation of a mobility friendly footpath.
We would like to organise working party events throughout the year to improve and maintain paths in Sunart.

Our other projects:



- Strontian Visitor Information Centre. In winter 2017, Visit Scotland announced the closure of the Visitor Information Centre located in the centre of Strontian. The Sunart Community Council asked the Community Company to investigate and persue the aquisition of the building. The main aim will be to secure the Visitor Information service for Sunart and the wider area and encorporate local business use to ensure that it is viable to run and sustain.

- Strontian Community School Building Ltd. Building the first community owned primary school in the country. The Sunart Communtiy Company supports this exciting project. You can find out more on their website: Strontian Community School Building LTD

- Raise the Anchor. The Sunart Community Company is working with the Community Council to progress an exciting project to Raise the Anchor of the Floating Free Church of Loch Sunart. Find out more on the website: Strontian Floating Church

Polloch Cabins. The Forestry Enterprise Scotland notified the Sunart Community Council and Sunart Community Company that they may wish to earmark the Polloch Cabins for disposal in the future. As a public body, they must notify the community first to see if the community wishes to purchase an asset. We are conducting surveys of people in Polloch and carrying out investigations over what potential the site has.

Glen Hurich. As above, Forest Enterprise Scotland have notified the community that they may wish to dispose of an area of woodland/hill ground in the future. We are carrying out investigations to see what the potential benefits of the site may be. 

Sunart Archives. In the 2014 and subsiquent community surveys, local heritage has been highlighted as an area of priority. Anyone with a particular interest in the subject, please contact Izzy. 

Swimming pool feasibility. There is a working group who are looking into potential sustainable options and gathering information about community owned swimming pools.
