  • 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.

  • Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
    This was always a puff. Gordon Brown never had any position from which to act as such a guarantor.
  • Hazard warning lights on A83 for Rest and Be Thankful
    And, as a hazard warning at the entrance to the Scottish Parliament, it could replicate the warning at the entrance to Dante’s Inferno.
  • Gordon Brown to stand down from Westminster at General Election
    We did not say that Gordon Brown was ‘going out on a high’. We reported that his friends were saying last night that this is what he wants to do.
  • Welcome for movement on the Oban CHORD project money
    Could not agree more.
    The council’s management [?] of the CHORD project will go down as one of the longest shaggy dog stories in local authority history.
  • Michael Russell’s message to Argyll
    Curriculum for Excellence was indeed introduced by Mr Russell’s predecessor, Fiona Hyslop.
    He is not responsible for its origins but he is responsible for implementing it.
    The one who finally hits the ‘Go’ button is the one responsible for the consequences.
    It is immediately obvious that CfE is a content free zone and a jargon riddled notion,
    You have only to go to its website and try to make sense of what it says about itself and try to make reason of it.
    Mr Russell as the incoming Education Secretary had the opportunity and the authority to bin CfE – but did not.
    It is Scotland’s young people and Scotland’s future who will pay for the patent inadequacies of CfE imposed upon it through the superficial engagement of these two ministers.

  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:

        Tayvallich community now own village business

        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.
