Camuscross & Duisdale Initiative was set up to develop projects to benefit the local community, to sustain it and make it thrive.

Three things were at the top of the community’s wish list – a shop, a proper hall for activities, and a place to meet and socialise. Thus, the idea for An Crùbh was born.

The journey to build An Crùbh began in 2011. We received generous support from The Big Lottery Fund, The Coastal Communities Fund, Highland Council, The Robertson Trust, HIE, Fearann Eilean Iarmain, Camuscross & Duisdale Initiative Fundraising Group and architects WT Architecture. The Common Grazings Shareholders were also very generous in their support of the project.

The local community gave of their time and effort very generously. And at the beginning of 2016 the children of Camuscross and Duisdale cut the first sod.

The building that came out of that journey is a model for how small communities can develop and bring vibrancy to an area.
