BADENTARBET ESTATE

We plan to post regular updates on the purchase of the Badentarbet Estate here so please keep an eye out for news.

BACKGROUND

On the evening of 27th of June 2024, the people of Coigach took part in a historic vote of intent to take ownership of the land on which they live and work.

More than 100 people attended a meeting in the community hall, chaired by Topher Dawson from Ullapool, who took on a neutral role to ensure a balance of views were heard before the vote took place.

The meeting was called due to an unprecedented offer having been made by private philanthropist, Iain Wace, to assist the community with purchasing the crofted land of the Badentarbet Estate, approximately 90% of the area of the whole estate. 

The response from the community was overwhelmingly in favour of the offer. Read CCDC’s full press release here!
