All the homes are being made with ‘major support’ from the Scottish Government’s Rural and Islands Housing Fund, as mentioned on the website.
Ever imagined living the quiet and serene life on a remote island, with the daily visuals of the waves breaking on the shores? Well, that dream of yours can come true as an island off the coast of Scotland is appealing for new residents to boost its population.
The Isle of Rum, which currently has just 32 residents, wants outsiders to apply for new houses that are being built on the island’s only village, Kinloch.
The island currently faces a need for more people, especially children to take up places in the school. The current residents hope that young families will be interested in moving to the island as if offers a peaceful and healthier life.
The official website of the Isle of Rum page says, the island is looking for ‘dynamic individuals or families who are keen to fit into the island way of life.’
“The community land owning Trust, who own most of Kinloch village, is looking for dynamic individuals or families who are keen to fit into the island way of life and help drive positive change for this young and growing community. Rum has a population of between 30 and 40 adults and children. We have a small, dynamic Primary and Nursery School,” the website’s ‘News & Events’ section reads.
