The Staffin Community Trust has developed a range of diverse projects since 1994 with the promotion of Gaelic language and culture at the forefront of those efforts.
The SCT is served by local people who are striving to improve Staffin’s economy by attracting investment and creating employment.
SCT’s membership is open to all current residents and a far-flung diaspora who retain strong links with their home community.
Staffin - the Beating Heart of Skye. "Over the years the scattered townships which comprise the community of Staffin in north Skye have delivered a huge amount to the life and good health of the island. Staffin has produced great writers and musicians. It has delivered Camanachd Cup winners, celebrated athletes and inspiring academics. It has sent forth successful entrepreneurs, seamen, broadcasters, buildings and politicians to Portree and beyond. Staffin has done all of this while remaining an active crofting community and having the highest concentration of Gaelic speakers in Skye. Its vibrancy is an object lesson in how to embrace the 21st century without pulling up your roots. We all have something to learn from the townships at the foot of the Quiraing." – Extract from The West Highland Free Press, after Staffin was named the Gaelic Community of the Year.
