THE Mull of Galloway Trust has contacted the Scottish Government confirming that they wish to proceed with the purchase of the Mull of Galloway Lighthouse.
The lighthouse, currently owned by the Northern
Lighthouse Board has been put up for sale with an asking price in the
region of £340k.
The community have already registered an
interest in the purchase of the 30-acre site, and they now have exactly
six months in which to complete the purchase.
The timetable for
the purchase is dictated by legislation within the land reform
(Scotland) Act 2003 and the sale must be completed within six months of
the notification being received by the Scottish Government.
