We are looking for funds to help us with our bid to bring the Isle of Ulva back into the community’s hands in order to re-invigorate the economy and social fabric of the island.

This marks a crossroads in the history of Ulva and North West Mull. It provides a golden opportunity to ensure the survival and bolster the development of a fragile and remote community, enabling a vibrant and sustainable future for generations to come.   

Sustainable community benefit is dependent on more people living and working year round on the island itself and the way to achieve this is for the land to be owned and managed by the community.   

Our plans for Ulva include:

  - Provide security of tenure for existing and future residents  

  - Improve housing stock and other buildings

  - Improve infrastructure  - Revitalise and expand agriculture  

  - Manage forestry sustainably and seek new opportunities

  - Unlock the very large tourism potential largely untapped at present

  - Care for and promote the cultural heritage of the island

  - Enhance biodiversity and conserve sensitive habitats and species

  - Safeguard natural habitats of the isolated associated islands and skerries

  - Support Marine Industries, Fishing and Aquaculture  

The aim is for economic and social development leading to sustainable population increases. After 5 years a doubling to 10 people, after 10 years up to 20 people and ultimately after 20 years or so as many as 30 or more full time residents on the island are envisaged.

We have eight months within which to set out our Business Plan and raise the purchase price.
