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.

Kilmaronock Community Council do not use the community website and now have their own site. Please email the Secretary  if you require any further information.

If you have a booking enquiry for Kilmaronock Millennium Hall please email them direct


What's Happening?

Smartocharn – the annual village litter pick will take place on 22 March 2020. Please click here for full information and more details on how to be involved.

If you would like to know more about what has happened and is happening at our local RSPB reserve you can read the 5 Year Plan here.

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.
