Lochbroom Woodfuels is a community-owned social enterprise, constituted as a trading arm of the Ullapool Community Trust. All our profits are reinvested back into the business or other projects in our local community.

Lochbroom Woodfuels is a wholly-owned trading subsidiary. It is a community-owned social enterprise that works to supply sustainable local woodfuel. The aim is to reduce Ullapool’s fossil fuel usage, mitigate fuel poverty and create employment.

They continue to offer training and volunteering opportunities  in rural skills to local youngsters.
