NWMCWC was set up by the local community in 2006 to purchase and manage the Langamull and West Ardhu forests in North West Mull. To date the Company have created a 16.5km haul route to bring landlocked timber to market, built a 95kw micro hydro scheme, created 9 Forest Crofts and set up Island Woodfuels, producing all the island’s woodchip and running a firewood business. Focus now is on forest design planning and replant.
In 2018 the company was successful in a community right to buy of the island of Ulva. Plans centre around re-population, economic renewal and sustainable development of the island.
