Duror & KentallenLocal GROUPS

Please let us know of any errors or omissions:

Autism Initiatives

The Autism Initiatives Highland One Stop Shop holds informal drop-in sessions on the second Monday of each month between 1pm and 3pm at the Kilmallie Community Centre, Station Road, Corpach, Fort William PH33 7JH.

If you'd like to come along and find out more about the service and the ways in which Autism Initiatives support autistic adults in the Highlands (and adults supporting autistic children) please contact

Book Club (Mainly Fiction)

We're an informal, flexible group that meet approximately every six weeks at members' homes.

A new book is agreed by consensus at each meeting and published to the group, along with the location of the next meeting. Most of the discussion takes place in a WhatsApp group, but we also communicate the book and meeting dates/locations by email.

Books tend to be fiction, but the occasional non-fiction book does creep into the list.

Book Club (Non-Fiction)

We meet at book club members' homes once every six weeks to discuss a selected non-fiction book.

If you'd like to join, please email using the address below and we will contact you with details of the next meeting, and the book we are currently reading.

Church of Scotland Guild

Duror Guild meets in Duror Church Hall at 2.30pm on the second Tuesday of each month (from October to April).

We are a small and welcoming group of approx 12 members, who meet to enjoy talks and discussions, friendship and laughter, tea and biscuits - and sometimes cake.

Come and join us  - all welcome, all ages, men and women, any denomination or none.  Nobody will press you to go to church.

Village Lunch

12.30pm on second and fourth Thursday of each month (from October to March) in Kentallen & Duror Community Centre. We only ask for a donation, to continue provision of the lunches.

In 1990/91 Duror church undertook a Parish review and one of the findings was that people wanted somewhere to meet that was warm and friendly and they could have a chat and so the Soup Lunch was started by Mrs Billy Cameron.

The church is lucky to have a bequest which is used to fund the lunches, ie hire of hall, heating and the food. We now have a group of about 20 helpers who make the soup and fill the rolls on a rota basis. Volunteers come from all over the village and not just from the church. All newcomers are always welcome.

At Christmas we also do a Village Christmas Lunch. Again this is produced by the small army of volunteers with turkey and all the usual accompaniments  - and then there are the puddings, with usually about 6 or 7 to choose from.

We only ask for a donation to the bequest fund, to continue provision of the lunches.
