GIGHA- Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust

In 2001 when the Isle of Gigha was put on the market, the island residents were encouraged by the local MSP, George Lyon, and other bodies to take the step, which was unusual at the time and put Gigha in the vanguard of the Scottish land reform movement. The community voted on the proposals and a Committee was elected with seven members, supported by advisors, to take the plan forward and the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust was established.

Gigha has changed substantially since the buy-out and while the beauty of the island is as timeless as ever, the facilities and the infrastructure has steadily improved. In 2004, the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust purchased 3 second-hand wind turbines and created the first community-owned grid-connected windfarm in Scotland. Since they have been in operation, the Dancing Ladies, (as they are known locally), have provided significant income to the Trust and allowed the island to prosper.

The Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust has 3 subsidiary companies which develop and manage projects and assets including the Gigha hotel, self-catering holiday cottages, pontoons and moorings, wind turbines and many other aspects of the island businesses. All profits are returned to the Trust to continue to develop the island. The 3 subsidiary companies are: Gigha Trading Ltd, Gigha Green Power Ltd and Gigha Renewable Energy.
