The Trust is managed by a voluntary board of directors who are elected from its membership and are widely representative of the South Kintyre community. It has over 600 members and at any time a maximum of 8 directors.
Monthly board meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month in the Town Hall chambers.
Members are invited to the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Where are we?
Kintyre is a peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. Geographically, the peninsula is long and narrow, at no point more than 11 miles from west coast to east coast.
The principal town of the area is Campbeltown, which has been a royal burgh since the mid-18th century. The area’s economy has long relied on fishing and farming, although Campbeltown has a reputation as a producer of some of the world’s finest single malt whisky.
What do we do?
SKDT has become a trusted community anchor organization for South Kintyre, delivering several substantial projects, both independently and in partnership. It has also supported other local community groups and charities with project development and funding. Read about our projects to find out more about what we do.

You can visit us at our office in Campbeltown Town Hall, 54 Main Street, Campbeltown, PA28 6AB
The SKDT Town Hall Office is a working office and we try our very best to be open for working hours 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday, however our project work sometimes takes us out of the office, working within the community, which means we have to close the building at times.
If this happens we will place a notice on the door and a message on the website and social media to let you know.
We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause and hope you will come back and talk to us or alternatively email firstname.lastname@example.org or Telephone 01586 552870
