In 2020, Friends of Loch Etive (FoLE) joined the team as Hope Spot champions.

Friends of Loch Etive is a Scottish charity, set up in 2014 to protect the wildlife and environment of Loch Etive, and the surrounding area, for the benefit of the Etive community and visitors to the loch.

FoLE has over three hundred members, made up of a mixture of those living near Loch Etive and the many regular visitors to Etive.

FoLE’s trustees and members cherish the natural beauty and character of Loch Etive and set out to promote and encourage not only the conservation of the loch and its wildlife, to keep Loch Etive as a special place to live near and visit, but also its sensitive management in order to provide truly sustainable employment and other opportunities for the local community.
