Balnakeil Craft Village

Balnakeil Craft Village was originally built as an early warning station against nuclear attack, but became obsolete before coming fully into use. The site was taken over by the local authority who initiated the craft village, letting the buildings to craftspeople. Later, the buildings were sold to their tenants and they now change hands on the open market. There is no longer any obligation for every building to house a craft business, but a high proportion do so.

Newton Dee Camphill Village

We are a suburban community of 185 people, including 90 adults with special needs. We live and work together in 21 households, working on the land, and gift/coffee shop. We receive no salaries and our needs are met by the community. The management of the community is based on consensus with day-to-day decisions being made by mandate working groups. Our workforce is based on volunteers, with young people from Britain and abroad joining us (minimum age 19) for a minimum of one year. Our striving is based on anthroposophy, formulated by Rudolf Steiner.

Inverness L'Arche Community

L'Arche Inverness is part of the world-wide federation of L'Arche communities founded by Jean Vanier in 1964, that aims to build community with people with learning disabilities. Our community is based in the capital of the Scottish Highlands and consists of 5 households where community members live together; those with learning disabilities and those who come as 'assistants', sharing in every aspect of daily living: shopping, cooking, celebrating, working and praying together. We are primarily a community comprising members representing various Christian traditions.
