Welcome to Duror & Kentallen Community WEBSITE

We are a friendly community centred around the two small coastal villages of Duror and Kentallen in the west highlands of Scotland.

Nestled amongst the mountains and with Loch Linnhe in front of us, we're one of Scotland's best kept secrets - although you may have heard of us if you've read Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped.

The hub of our community is the Community Centre, midway between the two villages. We also have a thriving primary school, church, and many sports, arts, and social groups.

Check out our news & events and other pages on this site to learn more. If you have any information you think would be of interest for the website, or have any comments, please contact us at dkccinfo@gmail.com.
