This Facebook page is run by Carloway Community Association and aims is to provide up-to-date information about what is happening in the community of Carloway . Carloway Community Association manages Carloway Community Centre and Playpark, located in village of Knock Carloway. We host events and strive to promote the well-being of the community resident in eight villages from Tolsta Chaolais to Dalmore.

Work is presently under way on the former Carloway Primary School to create a new centre and hub for the community.
