Achamore House is gone ...

March 15th 2004 will go down in Gigha history as the day a burden was removed from the shoulders of us all. We now don't have to worry that the organisations that lent us the money to buy our Island will take bits off us and we would have no say in what happens to them. We had national radio and press there to show the world that we could look after our own affairs; admittedly there is still an awful lot to do and an awful lot of potential mistakes to be made.

 

Some may feel that the sale of the big house is a shame but a good point was made as in the spectre of the big house looking down on the residents of Gigha and having some kind of hold on them is now gone. From now on the Big House is our equal and neighbour and not our superior.

 

All the money raised, by whatever means, will now be used for the benefit of the Island and its inhabitants. Some may benefit more than others at certain times but over time everyone will be a beneficiary of the “New Dawn” and we must not lose sight of that. The biggest beneficiaries will be the generation just starting out as Gighachs and the generations to follow.
