To the right of the road is the beautiful Plock of Kyle.
PLOCK OF KYLE
The Plock which came into Kyle & Lochalsh Community Trust’s (KLCT) ownership in February 2019 is a large area of land, around 60 acres, on the outskirts of the village at the access point to the Skye Bridge. It is a remarkable natural heritage and community asset which fell into disuse some years ago. With support from the Hamilton Park Trustees (HPT), (KLCT) delivered a range of access improvements funded by Big Lottery which helped to open up the area and bring it back to community use.
Originally owned by the HPT, who had bequeathed to the community in 1946, it 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 2018 with support from the Scottish Land Fund, KLCT worked with consultants and the community to create a Masterplan for the Plock and Toll Office to develop the parkland sustainably and to create widespread benefits for the community.
Our small group of conservation volunteers continue to meet every Tuesday morning to help to manage the area. To join our awesome team of Plock conservation volunteers just email firstname.lastname@example.org
