The best of luck to islanders on Ulva
SO, THE good people of Ulva have launched a bid to purchase the island under community right to buy legislation.
As we report this week, the move came about after the island off the west coast of Mull was put on the market with a price tag of £4.25 million.
I have no idea if the islanders will be able to raise the necessary funds, or if there is public money available to assist them, but I wish them every success in their attempt.
It doesn’t matter which way you cut it, no-one has a greater vested interest in the welfare of the island and its residents than the people who live there.
It would be best all round if the community owned its home.
