About Us

Our Trust was established in 2017 following a community-wide consultation that highlighted a desire from local people for a grass-roots approach towards making our community a better place to live, work and play.

 

We facilitate social, economic and environmental growth on the Easter Ross Peninsula, (Highland Council Ward 7) which includes: Tain, Hill of Fearn, Inver, Portmahomack, Kilmuir and Logie Easter, Milton, Nigg and the Seaboard villages of Hilton, Balintore, and Shandwick.
