The Assynt Foundation
In June 2005, the community of Assynt successfully purchased the £44,400 acre Glencanisp and Drumrunie estates, in a community land buy-out made possible through the Scottish Land Reform Act. The Assynt Foundation was set up as a community body to manage the estates, which are a beautiful area of hills, mountains and lochs, in the parish of Assynt. They include the iconic mountains Suilven, Canisp, Cul Mor and Cul Beag. There is also a beautiful old hunting lodge, Glencanip Lodge, which the Assynt Foundation are renting out for group self-catering holidays.
Create opportunities for local people to live and work on the land.
Assynt Foundation is an open, democratic organisation with membership, £1, open to everyone who lives in Assynt, Drumrunie and Inverpolly and is on the electoral roll.
Non-residents of Assynt can also apply to become friends of Assynt Foundation, for as little as £20 a year, and receive regular newsletters about the work of the foundation.
