Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust - Argyll & Islands

Established 2001

Our view of the future is a long term one based around the need to build a sustainable future for the island with a buoyant local economy where community businesses flourish alongside individual enterprise, where there are a range of housing opportunities with good quality affordable housing for all residents, and where any developments do not compromise the special environment of the island. Much has been achieved since the buy out. The population has grown to over 150, the school role has increased from 7 to over 20 primary pupils, new businesses have been created and others have relocated to new purpose built craft units, a major improvement programme for the island's housing is well underway, new homes to let are being built and a further five households have been building their own homes.

The trading activities of the Trust are managed by a subsidiary trading company, Gigha Trading Ltd, which is fully owned by the Trust. A further subsidiary company, Gigha Renewable Energy Ltd, holds full responsibility for managing the Gigha Windmills, Scotland's first grid-connected, community-owned windfarm. med
