Carloway belongs to the community
The Carloway Estate today comes into community ownership, after a three-year process of negotiation between the Carloway Estate Trust, and former Estate owners the Galloway family. In a statement released today the trust’s representatives said: “We have now achieved the goal that the community entrusted us with, and we see it as a great achievement. This has to be seen as the first step in a process that we hope will see prosperity, development, and long term benefit for the residents of Carloway Estate.” The Trust has appointed a Development Officer who will start work on July 6th and they also plan a community celebration event in Breasclete Hall on June 6th. Speaking for Community Land Scotland, David Cameron said: “Once again another part of the Western Isles comes into community landownership. The Carloway Community must be congratulated in the way that they have worked through the purchase process and from today onwards there is no doubt that they will address the development of their own land in a similar way.”
