Scottish Land Fund spreads festive cheer amongst local communities

A pub in an historic Fife village and former farm buildings in Lanarkshire will pass into community hands as communities across Scotland today start their Christmas celebrations early with grants from The Scottish Land Fund.

The Red Lion Inn in Culross and Loanhead near Tarbrax are set to be bought by their local communities following awards from the Scottish Land Fund. The awards are part of a package of grants to 12 groups in Scotland totalling £2,754,897.

West Fife Community Trading Ltd has received £504,500 to take over ownership of ‘B-listed’ The Red Lion Inn in the historic village of Culross to retain a social meeting place for residents and an important visitor attraction.

Tim Collins, Secretary, West Fife Community Trading Ltd, said:

“West Fife Community Trading Limited are delighted with the Scottish Land Fund support, which will help secure the future of our wonderful Inn, and would like to thank all those who helped us in our quest.”
