Culag Community Woodland Trust (CCWT) was formed in 1995 to manage Culag Wood under a fifty-year lease from the owners, Assynt Estates and Highland Council. CCWT owns the Little Assynt Estate, which it bought in November 2000.
In July 2003 CCWT purchased an office to facilitate the smooth running of administration and communication with local residents, visitors and other organisations.
It is run by twelve directors drawn from the local community and has an active membership as well as enthusiastic volunteers and staff who all help the Trust work towards its key objective:
Create systematic opportunities, through partnership with other Assynt organisations, for:
o Employment and training of local people
o Improvements in well-being for locals and visitors
o Encouraging education about the area’s natural environment
