The successful applicant should have competent and considerable power boat handling experience and be willing to undertake further training as required.

For an update on activities that have taken place on the island over the summer have a look at our photo filled mailchimp newsletter using this link.
The shuttle bus will now run on: Friday 4-5 and 8-9, Saturday 10-8 and Sunday 10-12 and 3-5.
This will connect with boats to Isle Martin at Ardmair
The bus will depart from Latheron Lane in Ullapool, outside Dulcies and the old Hydro shop, opposite Tesco.
Running the bus will be one of our biggest costs for this weekend so if everyone keeps this in mind, uses it and makes a donation once they get to the island we will cover our costs.

Foundation Scotland have just awarded us £1500 towards the Access Officer post, meaning we have secured all the funding for 6 months of this job! If it proves a success then we will be seeking more funding to continue it as a permanent position. We hope that people will find access to the island easier and that more new users are able to visit and make the most of this community owned island.
Access Officer – apply here.
Great things are happening!
The HIghland Council have just announced that they will be sending a wee bit of cash our way to support the Access Officer post. It’s exiting to see all the support that has been coming our way recently and projects taking shape. We have another bit of funding news to announce soon too. A little heritage project for the island.
