We are delighted to announce we have been awarded a grant of £31,400 from Foundation Scotland and Crown Estate Scotland, via the Community Capacity Grants Programme. With tourism and its associated facilities being a key focus of our 20-year Strategic Plan, the funding allocated from Foundation Scotland and Crown Estate Scotland will be used to cover a much-needed feasibility study for the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse buildings, as we seek to improve facilities there for both visitors and residents of North West Lewis. Monies allocated will also allow us to revisit our tourism strategy, enabling the delivery of the impactful tourism opportunities with long-term benefits that we seek for our area.
