Comment posted £6million for next generation community buy outs – ‘Britain’s new radicals’ by newsroom.

Thank you for the correction. Was there a filling station that had been part of the businsss that was bought by the community?

  • It is still in progress.
  • Thanks, Scott, That rings a bell.
  • Talk to Tayvallich quickly – and contact Community Land Scotland at once.
    Depending on when the auction is, you may be able to register an interest in time to halt that process.
  • Thanks for the Dick Gaughan link – new to me but an intriguingly different version from the Billy Bragg one which is the first and only version I’d previously heard.

    Highland declaration:
    The last to declare, Highland has just [08.15 19th September] announced a NO WIN.
    YES: 78,069
    NO: 87,739.

    Following the Highland declaration, Mary Pitcaithly has now been able to make the final formal declaration of the outcome of this referendum.

    A postscript – which she should promptly become: Alex Salmond’s senior personal adviser Joan McAlpine has just been on BBC television – and a more mean spirited, petty, helplessly manoeuvering nark would be hard to find.
    Given the First Minister’s own serious shortages in the larder of spiritual largeness, there could not have been a more inappropriate ‘adviser’to him. Ms McAlpine can only have exaggerated that endemic meanness to the detriment not only of Mr Salmond but the campaign which he drove in his own image.

    Our profound thanks to Gordon Harmer from Shetland who was a delight to work with and whose contributions widened our own perspectives here in Argyll and connected us directly to a part of the world whose energies and lateral thinking can teach us a lot.

    The Prime Minister has just made the most significant speech of his political life outside Downing Street in which he made pledges and laid out programmes of major reform – for Scotland and for the rest of the United Kingdom – to be completed and actioned in the scheduled already made public.
    We will deal with this in a separate article.
    Mr Cameron paid tribute to those who had fought for independence and said that what had driven them was understood in the awareness that we must change the way we are governed.
    This was echoed by Scottish Secretary, Alastair Carmichael, saying that the campaigning does not stop here. There is change to be made.

    The last word in a long but exhilarating night that took off in a direction hardly anticipated, is that a 10% majority – with the pro-independence campaign taking under 45% of the vote – but confined to only 4 of Scotland’s 32 local authorities – in all of the circumstances of a generally unsatisfactory campaign on both sides, is a clear mandate for Scotland’s long term membership of the union – and for the imperative to reform the Union comprehensively.
    We need to develop and implement the conceptually and structurally able federal union that marries individuality with collegiality.

  1. Being originally from Campbeltown, I am glad that the Gigha folk were able to buy their island, and the aerodrome at Machrihanish was bought. But, my question is, why should I as a tax payer, and all other tax payers have to support them and give handouts? Would it not be fairer to arrange reduced fees and interest from the state owned banks instead of public money (remember the government has no money, it is ours) I would like help to pay for my home, which the nasty bank actually owns till my mortgage is paid off, but there doesn’t seem to be a queue of politicians coughing up cash for that.

  2. I much prefer Dick Gaughan’s version of from his, in my view wonderful, album ‘Handful of Earth’.

    Also, I would just point out that large estates can receive enormous sums from the public purse under a variety of ‘schemes’ which contributes to their survival in their present form. So it could be seen that this contribution from the public purse is a small ‘balancing’ measure.

      • Generally good news here, but do be aware that the Tayvallich scheme does not include a filling station.

        Your own post refers:

        Good luck to Tarbert.

      • It looks like the auction is on 20th March. I am trying to contact the Tarbert community council to see if there is any appetite for this locally. I am also interested to know whether a similar option is available for another local landmark that has been closed and is in danger of falling into disrepair – The Columba Hotel.
