Stòras Uibhist has secured funding of £150,000 to repurpose the derelict shed site at Loch Carnan.

The funding has been awarded by the Regeneration Capital Grant Fund (RCGF), and the works will be completed in 2023, with the lease up for tender later this year.

Mary Schmoller, chair of Sealladh na Beinne Mòire, commented: “This successful grant award is great news for the community. This enables Stòras Uibhist to regenerate a community-owned asset and will allow a business to operate out of the new unit once complete. We thank the RCGF panel for recognising the importance of this community asset.”

It is hoped the necessary work can be carried out in the spring. In the meantime, businesses wishing to learn more about opportunities at the site are invited to contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
