Welcome to the Evanton Community Trust web site

The Evanton Community Trust is a charitable body which was set up in 2005 to undertake major local projects designed to develop new and improve or preserve existing community assets for the benefit of the community in and around Evanton in Ross-shire in the Highlands of Scotland.

The Trust is registered in Scotland as a charitable company and its vision is "to see a robust, inclusive and thriving community in Evanton where people are proud to work and live"

The Trust’s first project was to acquire and convert a brown-field site in the centre of the village into a Village Green with landscaping and planting. This is now a focal point for the centre of the village as well as an amenity for the local community.

More recently, the Trust has been looking at ways to restore local footpaths that have fallen into a state of disrepair.

Finally, the Trust has begun exploring ways in which the future of the Kiltearn Old Parish Church, one of the most important historical sites in the area, can be safeguarded.  

An underlying principle that informs all the Trust’s work is that of openness and transparency, presenting regular and clear information to its members and the community at large on all aspects of its work and activities, through local media, posters and leaflets as well as via web sites and social media outlets.
