All projects that KCT undertake will:

Some projects that the Trust are currently working on:
- Walkers are Welcome
The national Walkers are Welcome scheme recognises towns and villages that offer first class facilities and excellent opportunities for walkers. Following acceptance as associate members, The Trust prepared a full application in partnership with Kinlochleven Community Council. We were successful and Kinlochleven is currently the only village in the Highlands to be afforded this status.
- Greymares Footpath & Car Park
In the summer of 2014, much needed restoration of the initial section of the footpath to the Grey Mares Waterfall was undertaken. We hope we will have other opportunities to access funding for further footpath restoration and upgrading around the village. A note of thanks to Alastair Stewart our Local Access Officer for Highland Council in securing LEADER funding for this project and overseeing the work carried out.
- Village Square Regeneration Project & Memorial Plaques
The Trust is now offering Aluminium Memorial Plaques for sale that will be fixed onto the curved wall within our community garden. These durable plaques are designed for outdoor use and can be purchased for £50.00 per plaque. The price includes a border, letter engraving and installation. The plaque will measure 5 x 2 inches.
The choice of wording on the plaque is flexible and you may choose something to suit your individual taste e.g In Remembrance of your Loved One or In Loving Memory or simply the person’s name in which you would like to honour. A sample plaque is available to view during office hours.
Further details and application forms for the plaques are available from Jayne Wilkinson on 01855 831 779 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
