The Hamilton Park Trustees hold the Plock of Kyle in trust for the people of Kyle of Lochalsh. The Plock is a large area of land, almost 100 acres, on the outskirts of the village at the access point to the Skye Bridge. It was bequeathed to the community in 1946 and since then has provided space for a range of facilities including a golf course, a viewpoint and picnic area and a path network, as well as giving access to the sea at Pladaig Bay.
In January 2019 started a Lochalsh-wide conversation on local needs and priorities. This led to regular meetings supported and facilitated by the Scottish Communities Development Centre, where representatives from the various community council area received training on Community Empowerment legislation, consultation methods and tools and have undertaken a community-led survey for Lochalsh. We are now in a phase anlysisng the results of the survey and further consultation will be the next phase.
The Highland Council transferred the ownership of the pontoons to the Trust in April 2014 as part of the Community Challenge Fund. The Trust has been managing the facility and provide improvements for local and visiting boats as well as commercial operators.
We also prove 5 moorings between the village and the Skye Bridge, these are for locals and visitors. Please click the image above for more information.
Through the Community Challenge Fund, the Trust took ownership of the public toilet facilities in Spring 2014 from Highland Council. The Facilities have recently undergone some improvements thanks to funding from Highland & Islands Enterprise.
We are now able to take contactless payments for entry and use of the showers.
