Isle Martin is situated at the mouth of Loch Broom, some three miles north-west of Ullapool in Wester Ross. The Isle Martin Trust, a registered charity, was established in May 1999 as guardian of the island on behalf of the communities of Lochbroom and Coigach. The island was gifted to the communities by the RSPB.

The aims and objectives of the Isle Martin Trust are:

  • To maintain and develop Isle Martin as an important part of the local natural, cultural and human heritage, through a broadly based partnership of local interest, by:
  • Regenerating the quality and diversity of the natural heritage of the island
  • Developing the educational, cultural, human and recreational potential of the island as an important local and national resource
  • Identifying opportunities for sustainable economic activity in so far as it is consistent with conserving the natural habitat and wildlife interest of the island and the Trust’s charitable status
  • Encouraging and ensuring open access to the island
