Comment posted Will a (subsidised?) £10k buy SPR calmer waters in Tiree? by Alex McKay.
But then, Malcolm, as I understand it, not everyone on Tiree will be “fighting” SPR in a Court of Law, so if your advice is adopted, those who won’t be doing so can have a larger share!

- Karl, the 10k is not being offered to all the islanders – “Works out at 12.8pounds for each islander” – but specifically to those who want to gain qualifications, so dividing the sum by the number of islanders is the sort of ungrateful response that I’m sure those hoping to benefit from the money will find particularly unhelpful.

The ferry has hardly been “Tied up going nowhere”.

“domestic grazing”? That’s a suggestion by someone ignorant of the very poor farming potential of the types of land involved and of the present state of hill farming in Scotland today. Farming in Scotland, and especially hill farming, is almost wholly dependent on EU subsidies. The sheep population of Scotland has declined by over 15% in the last 10 years, simply because it isn’t profitable, with disproportional reductions on hill land. Try again.
