Blairmore Village Trust
During only its second year in the Beautiful Scotland competition, Blairmore Village Trust has continued to bring its enthusiasm and creativity to an impressive number of projects. There is a clear sense of bringing the wider community together and of looking after people. This is done in several different ways: through innovative long term strategic projects; through weekly social sessions; and by developing new initiatives to connect with, support and inspire other communities in the area. The local bus route project is an example of one such initiative, where local villages along the Cowal Peninsula united to celebrate the role that the bus route and drivers play in people’s lives. This attitude of caring and not competition is what really makes Blairmore Village Trust stand out.
