Important Notice from the Forestry Commission
We have now been officially served with the plant health notice which confirms that we do have phytopthera in the arboretum at Kilmun.
The infected site is just above the car park and this unfortunately means we are going to have to close the whole site to the public whilst we fell and remove the infected trees. This has to be undertaken by the end of August, meaning that we are predicting a start date of next week.
If you could let any regular users of Kilmun know that you know of that they will need to find an alternative route for most of August that would be greatly appreciated.
For info there is information going out in the local press and we are hoping to undertake a letter drop to the nearby residents informing them of our plans and why it is required.
If you could thank the community for their understanding and compliance on my behalf

Blairmore Hall Save our Clock Fund Raising Campaign
This week Blairmore Hall Trust are launching a Save our Clock Campaign to raise £2,500 to repair the clock on the outside of this iconic building and install an electrical winding mechanism.
Blairmore Hall was built in the 1870s and was formerly the passenger waiting room for Blairmore Pier. Ownership of The building was transferred to the Blairmore Community in the 1970’s and since then the clock has required regular winding which involves climbing up a steep ladder inside the hall and manually winding the mechanism. A very precarious task.
Over the last few years this task has been carried out by Joe Lynn a Blairmore resident and Bruce Marshall Chairperson of the Hall Trust. For the last few months the Clock has stopped working as the weights have jammed and it is felt that a ‘dead clock’ in the village does not reflect the vibrancy of life in the Blairmore Community. The Hall Trust are therefore taking steps to get the clock working again and save it for the future through fixing the fault and installing an electrical winding mechanism which will mean manual winding is no longer required.
We are asking people throughout the Cowal area and further afield to help raise the money required through donations at collecting points along the Shore and online at
