Abriachan, a scattered township of beautiful woodland, crofts and people
why I love abriachan...
I am very grateful to farm in this scattered rural community above Loch Ness. We have a community hall and woodland, with many different activities and events such as live music, stargazing, highland games and ceilidhs. My neighbouring community forest has a network of trails that many people come to enjoy, and is also where I source firewood and woodshavings. There is a small boating and wildlife loch. This is enriching to us all, and I am delighted to be involved in our community milk run, hall committee and the Abriachan Forest Trust.
We are nothing without community - in our ecosystems but also our human communities. They keep us connected, healthy and thriving - and acknowledging our interdependence for survival is really important.
