Topic - Applecross Estate - bid to establish community control rejected

Douglas Griffin - on 15 Nov 2012
This item has received little or no attention in the UK media so I thought it might be worth bringing to the attention of people on here.

A petition organised by Land Action Scotland to bring Applecross under community control has been rejected by the trustees of the Applecross Estate:

Their reasoning is here:

So the ownership of the 60,000 acre Applecross Estate remains in the hands of the six Trustees:

Be interesting to see what happens next. A lot of claim and counter-claim going on at the moment. Worth following Andy Wightman (@andywightman) and Land Action Scotland (@landactionscot) on Twitter if you’re interested.
