Conservative Councillors working to meet challenges of rural economy

I was delighted to meet with depute leader of the Council Gary Mulvaney and depute policy lead for communities Sir Jamie McGrigor in Kilmory recently.

We discussed the important need to grow Argyll & Bute's rural economy and the various challenges that creates.
