Community and Charity

The Kilfinichen Estate encompasses one of the remoter areas of Mull, extending from the summit of Ben More to the National Trust for Scotland holding at Burg.

Roses Charitable Trust

Far from being a sleepy rural retreat, the Estate is a hive of activity. One of the Estate’s highlights is Tavool House, run by the Roses Charitable Trust, which enables disadvantaged young people to benefit from potentially life changing outdoor experiences and personal development courses. During 2014 fourteen groups stayed at Tavool, including Perth & Edinburgh Young Carers, deprived of their childhood by the responsibilities of caring for family members and in need of a break from their caring role at home.

Funds are also raised in support of The Roses Charitable Trust and the work of the Roses Project through Hebridean Pursuits Ltd (HPL). HPL offer a wide range of sea and mountain activities to a variety of clients – schools, youth projects, universities, private groups and individuals. For more information visit
