The current owners of Tanera Mor have decided to sell the island and have offered Coigach Community Development Company (CCDC) the opportunity to buy the island on behalf of the community of Coigach. The owners’ agents CKD Galbraith,  have assessed the value as being approximately £2.6m.

A consultant, Munro Gauld, has been appointed to carry out a quick options appraisal in order that the community can make an informed decision to either pursue the matter and seek funding or if declining, enable the current owners to put the island on the open market in Spring 2013.

As part of this process we would like to find out your views as a local resident and would be grateful if you would complete a questionnaire – available here:   Tanera Mor Community Survey Questionnaire 18.1.13 then return it to either Achiltibuie Stores, Polbain Stores, or directly to the consultant Munro Gauld, West Tofts Cottage, Stanley, Perthshire PH1 4PG munro.gauld@tiscali.co.uk  All responses will be treated as confidential.

The results of the Options Appraisal and Community Views Survey and will be presented at a Public Meeting on Thursday 7th February at 7.30pm in Coigach Village Hall.

As part of his study, Munro visited Tanera on Thursday 18th Jan, where Richard Williams (representing the current owners) showed him round some of the houses, the cafe and took a spin round the bay to get an idea of what was on offer.   All aboard the Patricia, with Richard at the helm were Munro, Lesley Muir (local resident and member of CCDC) and Julia Campbell Local Development Officer: all enjoying the glorious sunshine and the fair shipping conditions!

All aboard! The commute from Badentarbet Pier.
