About the Trust

The Arrochar and Tarbet Community Development Trust (A&TCDT) is a development organisation and registered charity that works with the community to improve the quality of life for residents of Arrochar, Tarbet, Succoth and the surrounding area.

Along with the other communities in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park the villagers from Arrochar, Tarbet and Succoth, as well as residents from associated outlying areas such as Ardlui and Ardgarten, undertook a voluntary exercise in 2003 to produce our first Community Action Plan that the Trust has since been following.

The Board of elected Directors have a broad range of skills, knowledge and expertise that enables the Trust to address its aims and objectives.

The Trust welcomes new members. A life membership costs just £5 and entitles you to attend and vote at the Trust AGM, and to be elected onto the Board of Directors.
