The Applecross Trust welcomes last month’s announcement that the Rural Housing Fund has awarded grant funding to Applecross Community Company towards the construction of three two-bedroom houses in Camusterrach.
A further announcement is expected soon on the outcome of the Community Company’s application to the Scottish Land Fund to purchase land from the Trust. Two distinct parcels of land – 6 acres of the Applecross Mains Farm and the 35-acre Torgarve Woodland - have been offered by the Trust to help promote further affordable housing, allotments and community woodland.
As of 15 July 2020, Hartfield House hostel reopened to the public. Strict social distancing rules and an additional cleaning schedule have been put in place to keep customers and staff safe. The newly refurbished ensuite rooms are a great addition for those wanting to stay and keep their distance from other guests. The building is looking really great and the staff are really looking forward to welcoming visitors.
