Its ambition is for a new community facility including a café, a digitally connected health room, a flexible space for community activities and some business rental space together with a covered outdoor space, plus outside seating, play areas and gardens.

CCT also hosts the monthly Culbokie Community Market, and helps look after Culbokie Woods, where it also runs an orienteering course.

Culbokie Woods, to the south of the village, is enjoyed by walkers, cyclists, orienteers, and bird watchers.

Ideally placed to take advantage of the highly popular North Coast 500 route, the broader Black Isle area enjoys several sandy beaches, quality golf courses and places of general interest. The area is renowned for its sea life, most notably bottlenose dolphins in the Moray Firth. Water sports and fishing are highly popular hobbies in the region.

Facilities such as Dingwall Leisure Centre Community, with its gym, fitness complex, swimming pool and indoor sports halls, and Black Isle Leisure Centre are available.
