Holyrood grants £4.4m for Ulva community buyout

A COMMUNITY bid to buy the Isle of Ulva has been granted £4.4million by the Scottish Government, enabling open negotiations to begin with the owner.

North West Mull Community Woodland Company (NWMCWC) now has until Saturday June 9 to agree terms with the Howard family, raise the rest of the required funding and complete the sale.

The group hopes to buy the estate, which spans 2,000 hectares and includes the 12km-long Isle of Ulva which is home to just six residents, as well as land on nearby Mull. The buyout group aims to attract new residents by increasing economic activity and housing stock.
