Want to invest in a unique community self-catering business?

The Comrie Development Trust has launched a community share offer for the Cultybraggan Camp 21 Bunkhouse.

Cultybraggan Camp, in Perthshire, is the last remaining World War II high security Prisoner of War camp in the UK. On behalf of the community, the Comrie Development Trust acquired the camp in 2007, from the army, to ensure that it survived intact.

They are now inviting people to invest in their Cultybraggan Heritage Self-catering community share offer to give new life to ten B-listed buildings at the camp as bunkhouse and self-catering accommodation.

Comrie Development Trust has secured funding from Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Scottish & Southern Energy to refurbish a key group of vacant buildings within the camp.

This share offer will provide the final piece of the funding package, and demonstrate widespread support for the project.

The share offer target is £45,000 and shares are available from £25.

Visit the Microgenius website for more information and to invest in the community share offer.
