Scottish Land Fund Award

Colonsay Community Development Company (CCDC) is excited to be able to announce that they have been awarded £395,000 by the Scottish Land Fund towards the cost of land purchase in Scalasaig. This is for the development of much needed new community-led housing and business space. A substantial award from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) also helped towards the total sum required.
We owe a lot of thanks to The Highlands Small Community Housing Trust, HIE and MOWI for their help and support in getting us to this point. We would also like to acknowledge Colonsay Estate's commitment to our project.
