The Isle of Rum Community Trust was set up as a vehicle for change and development, and to enable community ownership of land, and houses on the Isle of Rum. Following a phased transfer of assets from Scottish Natural Heritage in 2009 & 2010, the Trust now owns around 35 hectares of land and 11 residential properties in and around Kinloch Village. The Trust aims to manage community land and assets for the community and the public in general, and to promote sustainable rural regeneration.The current tiny shop provides a vital lifeline to the island's community, which only has a ferry service 4 days a week. A bigger shop could stock a wider range of goods, and become more economically viable. An ad-hoc tearoom operates in the Community Hall, but dedicated premises would present a more viable business opportunity for local residents. Accommodation on the island is very limited, both for residents and guests, and restricts the number of people who can stay on our lovely island.

We are applying for the RBS Community Force Award funding to help with the costs of a carrying out feasibility study for the Byre Redevelopment – this will find out what we need to do, what it will cost, and to develop a design in consultation with the community. Please follow the link below and vote for our project. Voting starts on the 26th of September 2011 – please show your support by VOTING NOW!
