CLADICH’S village phone box has been given a fresh coat of paint and a new lease of life, thanks to residents who want to restore its place as a community icon.
The bright-red former BT box is now a tiny shop, selling home baking, cards and paintings.
It will open daily for the summer season.
Situated in a scenic spot in the Loch Awe-side hamlet, the out- of-use landmark captured the imagination of local friends Holly Ford, Bron Campbell and Hilary Ollason.
‘ We decided that selling cakes from the phone box would be a way to bring it back to life, involve the community and make an interesting and different place to stop in Cladich,’ said Holly.
The phone box was obtained for community use through BT’s ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ scheme, which aims to find new uses for classic phone boxes.
