Case Studies

Rural Housing Guide

These Case Studies are practical examples of where rural communities have taken action and developed their own solutions to local housing needs, communities such as:

Strathmashie, Laggan - where the community bought and renovated empty forestry houses

Crianlarich - renovation of derelict railway houses by Strathfillan Community Development Trust

Knoydart Foundation - renovation of empty property and new community owned houses built with Scottish Government grant

The West Harris Trust - providing house plots at low cost to enable people to build their own homes
