access a small consultancy fund to assist with project planning and

feasibility and they can access development funding, a limited fund

available to help initiate project development.

Crofting Projects


This project aims to address the problem of erosion through sand being blown from machair fronts in certain areas of the island. A novel approach to the erosion has been developed and shows considerable potential for dealing with the problem. Local Food Production  This project aims to increase the production and variety of wholesome local foods grown on Barra and Vatersay. There are plans for the development of a locally based hebridean Food festival, specifically designed to act as a showcase for local produce. This Project has considerable scope for further development.
