Website of the Week: A Kilchoan Diary

at Highland CouncilYou can”t get much remoter than the crofting community of Kilchoan, perched on Britain’s most westerly point nearly two hours by car from Fort William. It may be remote, but it is one of the most active and  vibrant communities I am privileged to represent. Every time I drive along the twisting, single-track road that hugs the shore of Loch Sunart, I know that I am going to receive a warm welcome and meet with like-minded people who are determined to get the best for their community.

A Kilchoan Diary, charts the day-to-day life of the village through blog entries and some spectacular photographs. Written by local author Jon Haylett, it is an affectionate insight into how the landscape and wildlife changes as the seasons progress throughout the year. I have only just discovered the series of pages giving historical information about each of the crofting settlements in the area; they give you an understanding of how the area has adapted and developed over the centuries.
