MSP welcomes Mull handover

After attending the ceremony to officially hand over the ownership of the Mull of Galloway to the local community, Galloway MSP Alex Fergusson said: “This is a great day for everyone who has worked so hard to bring about community ownership of Scotland’s most southerly point. The Mull of Galloway Trust and the people of Kirkmaiden Parish have worked tirelessly to bring this about and it is to the credit of the Northern Lighthouse Board that the transition has been virtually seamless. While there is every reason to celebrate the handover, the hard work really starts now but it is obvious to all that both the Trust and the wider community are more than ready to face the challenges that lie ahead and I have every faith that community ownership of this property will be an outstanding success.”
