Killiecrankie, Fincastle & Tummel Community Council is a voluntary organisation that represents the views of local residents to Perth & Kinross Council and other relevant agencies. Community Councils are established by statute. New planning applications and licensing matters are referred to Community Councils.
The Community Council aims to act as the voice for everyone who lives in the Killiecrankie, Fincastle and Tummel area. We hope that it can be a useful forum for young people, old timers, new arrivals and life-long residents alike.
Our meetings are held on the 3rd Monday of the month, every second month. Dates for 2024 are: 15 January, 18 March, 20 May, 15 July, 16 September and 18 November. As the addition of Tummel has expanded the number of homes within the Community Council area by about 50%, we plan holding 2 meetings per annum at Kynachan Hall. These will be in May and September. The other 4 meetings will continue to be held in Killiecrankie Village Hall.
We frequently invite guests speakers to our meetings to update us on on topics specific to our area. In January, we look forward to hearing a representative from Breedon Group talk about Shierglas Quarry and in March, a representative from Forestry and Land Scotland will talk about the translocation of beavers to Loch Kinardochy.
Details of past presentations from SSE Renewables and SSEN Transmission are on our Links page (below) along with details of the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) plan to deal with ash dieback in Killiecrankie.

As you can see from the map, our area stretches a long way from Tummel Bridge in the west to Ben Vrackie in the east. If you live or work anywhere in the KFT area, please join our mailing list. We aim to keep the community in the know.
We are in the process of creating a secure database that includes an up-to-date mailing list. All information will be stored and managed in a GDPR-compliant way. The mailing list needs to be built from scratch. So even if you previously received emails from the Community Council, we need you to send us your name and address to be included in the current list. Newcomers are also invited to subscribe.
