Kinloch Castle Friends Association (KCFA) has submitted its business plan for the asset transfer of the famous 19th-century hunting lodge on the Isle of Rum.

With a new business plan in place, KCFA hopes to show the castle can be brought back to life and provide much-needed accommodation for the island.

The plan has been presented to Scottish Natural Heritage which continues discussions with KCFA. A specialist in the restoration of historic buildings has been employed to look at the building.

Scottish Natural Heritage, Historic Environment Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise have all helped the KCFA team work to make our plan as comprehensive as possible.

KCFA now await due consideration from the Scottish Government.

A copy of the business plan can be found on the association’s website.
