Notice is hereby given that Carloway Estate Trust has applied to the Scottish Land Court for an Order authorising resumption of 0.022 hectares of the common grazings of the township of Breasclete. The purpose of resumption is to sell the area to Mr Angus MacIver, ‘Keava’, 40A Breasclete, Isle of Lewis, HS2 9ED, as the said area is already used as an extension to the existing house site and garden ground.
On 20th December the Court appointed this intimation by newspaper advertisement and ordered the Applicant to send to the Clerk to the Grazings Committee copies of the Application, associated productions and the Court’s Practice Note No. 4 (which emphasises the need for crofters to protect their own rights). The Court ordered any shareholder or other person having a legal interest who opposes the Application or who wishes to claim compensation or a share in value of the land to be resumed, to lodge Answers, including details of any such claim, with the Principal Clerk, George House, 126 George Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4HH within fifteen days from the end of the period covered by this edition of Events. Copies of the Application, productions and Practice Note have been sent to Mr Iain MacDonald, 37B Breasclete, Isle of Lewis, HS2 9EF and these documents may be inspected either there, at the Court’s offices in Edinburgh, or at the offices of the Agents. Copies of the Practice Note may also be obtained from the Principal Clerk (Tel: 0131 271 4360). It should be noted that any further Orders of the Court, including the Final Order, will be intimated to those persons who have lodged answers to this advertisement and to the Clerk to the Common Grazings Committee. Copies of any further Orders may be obtained from the Principal Clerk upon request.
