About Us

Our Purpose

Arran Community Land Initiative is made up of an enthusiastic group of islanders who have worked together to buy and improve an 80 acre area of disused farmland on the Isle of Arran for a variety of environmentally-friendly uses.

We hope to create learning and recreational opportunities by building community gardens and allotments, wildlife areas and bee-keeping areas, nature walks and mountain bike trails. Through this we hope to help the island’s resilience in terms of food sustainability and recreation opportunities for young and old.

Our objective is to transform an area of land on Arran for the community to nurture and enjoy.
