  • Thanks, Scott, That rings a bell.
  • Thank you for the correction. Was there a filling station that had been part of the businsss that was bought by the community?
  • 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.

    We are sorry that you suffer this experience but glad to know of it since it corresponds with what we heard from several sources during the research for this article.

    What you say about the new ADP Chair is of concern – but it has to be hoped that this was down to newness to ADP, nervousness, inexperience of the mess of ADP – and probably an advance briefing from Mr Sneddon whose strategic purpose she may not twigged and [wrongly but understandably] simply have accepted.
    Whatever – this was not the best start but what she goes on to do with this situation will be the measure of her.
  • Time to stop to think – as the cult sweeps into Campbeltown
    In the spirit of what you say, we have removed the joke which signed off the piece above.
    There is a distinction between vigorous political campaigning and a level of proselytising that enters the territory of the formation of a cult.
    This article is a genuine warning that that line has been crossed; and that sensible people need to consider whether they stay on the dangerous side of that line, join it or retreat from it – while retaining their wish to vote however they like.

  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.
