Ardnamurchan Book Club

Ardnamurchan Book Club (ABC) meets every few weeks in Kilchoan Learning Centre. If you enjoy reading why not join us? We have books available on a regular basis from Highland Library, which can be collected and returned to the Learning Centre. If you want to do more than just read a book, come along to our hour long meetings. The book provides a useful trigger for fascinating discussions on a range of topics so if you haven't managed to finish the book it doesn't really matter. We also swap ideas for good books to read.
As we plan ahead, everyone gets an opportunity to choose a book for the programme from the library list. The next books and dates for the Book Club meetings are as follows but following the summer break we will review the day and timing so please let us know if you would prefer a different time.

Road Closure Beside Queen's Cottage

S&K MacDonald Homes Ltd have been building 3 new homes for HSCHT & LHA since November 2015 beside the Queen's Cottage.

Kenneth MacDonald writes, "We have applied to and received approval from Highland Council TEC Services (with more than 28 days notice) for an evening road closure of the road into Kilchoan beside Queen's Cottage and Kilchoan Hotel. The closure is to allow installation of a new foul water sewer for these homes. The road and verge are 4.5m width.

"The closure will be for less than 9 hours commencing at 7.30pm on 10th May. No alternative access is available. However, we will have road plates available on site to rapidly re-establish a safe route for Emergency Service Vehicles only.

"I have already made contact with the Police (PC Angela Campbell) regarding this plan. We will also be contacting the Fire & Ambulance Services.

"Signs will be erected giving advance notice of the evening/night closure early next week."

Kenneth has also informed West Ardnamurchan Community Council and has invited representatives to meet him. Contact WACC secretary Gayle Cameron if you have concerns at westardcc@gmail.com
