Since coming into community ownership work has been progressing on several key projects, one of which is the refurbishment and repurposing of the former Laird’s House, Ulva House, as a heritage visitor centre with associated self-catering accommodation. To this end the company are seeking to appoint an ambitious and experienced project manager.
