    Savills valued the property at £850k. The DV valued it at £1.75m.

    Newsie, For Argyll, the uber-zealots and some who should know better all told us that the DV was wrong and that Savills were the real experts at this game.

    However, if the Council had followed the Savill’s ‘valuation’ that would have cost us all £650k.

    A case for cautious optimism?

    Like NCH I would have preferred to have seen a successful community buy-out and course there has been a preferred bidder before and that fell through. Hopefully though this one will not and that Ms Purdie will actively engage with the local community as she has promised to do.

  • Community Land Scotland: Land Reform Bill – real progress but needs to be bolder still
    This is a most reasonable statement from Community Land Scotland and I am glad that the Scottish Government is tackling this important issue.

    With only one of two exceptions it is only the very, very, wealthy who own sporting estates in Scotland. However, that didn’t stop John Major exempting them from business rates in 1994, nor David Cameron from doubling the public subsidy paid to grouse moors in England. Nor the tax breaks the pretend charitable Trusts such as Bute and Applecross estates receive from the public purse. Nor the rate exemptions private schools receive from the public purse.

    If the very rich want to have their sprogs educated at a school of their choice or blast their way through coveys of grouse and partridge or herds of red deer that’s their decision – but I do object to the rest us being asked to subsidise their choice of lifestyles.

    Because, you see, all of this comes at a time when according to the UK Government’s own figures there are 2.5 million children living in poverty in the UK with still a further £12 Billion of cuts to be made against the Welfare Budget.

    Tax cuts/exemptions for the very rich and welfare cuts for the very poor – I find that obscene.

    The Land Reform Bill is not the whole answer – and I’ve only highlighted one aspect of it here – but if it reverses the exemption from rates these so-called ‘Sporting Estates’ receive then at least it is a start.

    • Thank you Simon. I’m sorry I missed this for every possible reason.
      I personally had not seen your link. We share comment moderation duty so who sees what depends on who’s doing it.
      Walter Burton phoned us and so told me about this direct.
      We’re very glad of information like this and to see it shared as you did.

  1. That was excellent and hopefully it will also go viral around the world. Perhaps then Ms Sally Loudon and Clelland Sneddon will fall on their swords!!
