Welcome to the Isle of Kerrera

Kerrera is a small island in the Scottish Inner Hebrides. Reknowned for it's unspoilt scenery, accessible wilderness and fantastic array of wildlife, it is also home to around 36 full time adult residents as well as a growing number of children. The northern end of the island shelters Oban bay from the west, while the southern end is home to the majestic Gylen Castle with stunning views of Luing, Seil, Scarba, Mull, Colonsay and the Garvellachs.

The Isle of Kerrera Development Trust aims to represent the views of the residents, and to initiate and develop projects that will benefit the island, both for the community and for its visitors. At present the IKDT is represented at meetings for the improvements to the Kerrera Ferry Slipways with work due to commence in 2015 to both the Gallanach Road side and the Kerrera side.

The road linking the North and South of the island has been on the table many times in 2014 with major funding being a regular stumbling block but that will continue to be on the agenda.

Our new Project Officer, Jane Churchill, is exploring a wide variety of funding possibilities that will hopefully encompass the development of a village hall as well as solving the messy but necessary issue of islander's septic waste!

The current team of island based directors are as follows:
