The Arran Community Land Initiative (‘ACLI’) was established in 2012 as a Scottish Charitable Incorpoarated Organisation (SCIO) to purchase an 80acre area of disused farmland above Whiting Bay on Arran. The charity’s main objectives-as per our constitution-are to foster participation in land-based education, recreation and sport.
In addition to a community garden, allotments, polytunnels and apiary we run an extensive tree planting programme and have constructed paths for all to enjoy the wider site.
