Welcome to the website for the village of Gartocharn, Loch Lomond in Scotland. The website was created for the benefit of the community in the first instance, but also for anyone who would like to see what this beautiful part of the world has to offer.
GARTORAG – THE COMMUNITY NEWSPAPER
We nearly got the printed version out – the files went to the printer the same day the strict new measures came into effect! So teamrag have, in a groundbreaking move, put this issue online. If you are reading this please spread the word so people know. Please look after yourselves and enjoy this first ever digital edition of gartorag!

KCT ULTRAFAST BROADBAND PROJECT
Openreach have now carried out a detailed survey of the 116 properties who confirmed their interest in this project. We hoped the final quote would have been with us by the end of 2019 but as at 3 Febuary 2020 we are still waiting. KCT are chasing this on a regular basis but it looks as if the Scottish Government R100 plans might be causing the delay. Regular email updates have been sent to all those involved.
