Glenfinnan Community Council


Welcome to the Glenfinnan Community Council website. The Council has developed this site to enable residents and visitors alike to enjoy the "Glenfinnan Experience" and understand how the Community Council is working to improve the facilities available in the area.


Glenfinnan is a very special place, and is almost hallowed ground for many Scots because of the historic associations with the Jacobite cause. Many thousands of visitors come to Glenfinnan every year from all over the world to experience the special atmosphere and stunning scenery.


Especially popular is the Glenfinnan Gathering and Games which is held in August every year, on the Saturday closest to 19th August, the date on which the Jacobite standard was raised.


However Glenfinnan is also home for the nearly 100 people who make up the local community. This website is a reflection on life in the village and is very much non-commercial, although you will find details of those local businesses supporting the development of this site.


We are always happy to hear from both visitors to Glenfinnan and locals alike. If you want to contact the Community Council Secretary, please email us.


For further information about Glenfinnan, visit the new website developed by the local business community: Visit Glenfinnan.
