The Process which led to the current model of Assynt Development Trust

The consultation involved meetings in Drumbeg, Elphin, Kylesku, Lochinver, and Stoer, followed by a questionnaire that canvased 4.3% of the population. The response from the consultation was that the majority of the consulted residents approved the idea of a development trust for Assynt.
