The Island on the edge of the Atlantic
Working together for the economic and social benefit of Bernera
ABOUT THE TRUST
Our organisation was formed in 2013 to benefit the community of Bernera whilst following the principles of sustainable development, specifically to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
This activity ranges from pursuing a buyout of the island land from the landlord, to developing services and projects which are consistent with furthering the achievement of sustainable development of the community.
