A COMMUNITY group has been given the green light to mount a £4.2 million bid to buy a Scottish island which has a population of just six, including two children.
Members of the North West Mull Community Woodland Company (NWMCWC) were delighted at the news, which was announced by Land Reform Secretary Roseanna Cunningham.
They said their right to buy Ulva and associated holdings at Ulva Ferry on Mull had now been “triggered”, which gives them until early June to put together a funding package to meet the price the independent valuer set in December.
