The best of luck to is­lan­ders on Ulva

The Oban Times - - Districts -

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.
