Loch Arthur is a working Community in South West Scotland which includes men and women with learning disabilities. There are nine houses in which altogether more than 70 people live, including about twenty-eight people in supported tenancies. There is a farm, a large garden, a creamery, a bakery, a woodworkshop, a weaving workshop and a thriving farm shop.

Loch Arthur is a shared way of life in a modern rural Community. It offers security, together with challenges. We are committed to the fulfilment of the individual through a diversity of relationships and activities which create authentic social integration.

MP visits community

We were delighted to welcome our MP Richard Arkless, who visited our community in August 2016.  Richard said "'I enjoyed chatting with everyone I met - the community of Loch Arthur is so inspiring and the working ethos there has lead them to achieve huge success.....Loch Arthur is a truly wonderful place and I would encourage everyone to visit and sample the delicious, locally produced food they have available there.'
