Kilmallie Community Council was reconstituted in February 2011 after a gap of three years. Interest in re-forming KCC had grown after a number of local development issues had highlighted the importance of a community council in gauging and representing local opinion.

We are grateful to all the members of the previous community council for all their dedicated hard work over the years.

When we meet

We meet monthly (apart from July and December) on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, usually at 7.15pm at Kilmallie Hall, but please check for details in case of rearrangement at short notice. We welcome members of the public at all our meetings.

What we do

We are a voluntary body established within the statutory framework of Community Councils throughout Scotland.

Our objectives and responsibilities are laid down by The Highland Council as set out in detail in our constitution. Our key roles are –

  • to ascertain and reflect the views of our community;
  • to represent the views of our community to The Highland Council and other public bodies;
  • to promote the wellbeing of our community and foster community spirit;
  • to take action to further the interests of our community;
  • to be consulted on planning applications and liquor licensing applications in our area;

Our area

Our area covers a vast expanse of western Lochaber in the West Highlands of Scotland (see map) –

  • from the River Lochy in the east to beyond the head of Loch Eil in the west
  • and from the shores of Loch Eil in the south to the northern slopes of Glen Loy and almost to the summit of Gulvain in the north

You can find out lots more about our area in the pages about Kilmallie.

We’d love to hear from you
