The Isle of Gigha was put on the market in 2001 and the community were encouraged to purchase and own the island. Gigha was handed over to the Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust (IGHT) on the 15th March 2002, a day that is marked on the island every year as “Gigha Day”.
The Trust is managed by a Board of voluntary Directors. They are elected by the membership to develop the assets of the island and take forward plans and projects for the community. There are several subsidiary companies in place to generate income to the Trust that helps to continue to develop the island.
- Gigha Green Power Ltd - Operates an Enercon E33 turbine.
- Gigha Renewable Energy Ltd - Operates the three "Dancing Ladies" V27 turbines.
IGHT currently has 8 full-time paid employees and 6 part-time paid employees. This staff team support the 4 company Boards and help manage the daily business of the Trust. We also have many volunteers that undertake a wide variety of jobs and support projects on the island.
