Moray Council to transfer Hostel & Museum to Trust
Moray Council Councillors today agreed to transfer the Smugglers Hostel and Tomintoul Museum to Tomintoul & Glenlivet Development Trust to manage on behalf of the communities of Tomintoul & Glenlivet.
This decision represents a culmination of years of hard work by staff, volunteers and directors at the trust and we couldn’t have done it without the support of our members, partners and the wider community.
The decision really strengthens our funding case to HLF and LEADER and moves the trust into a new realm of asset ownership.
The Community Asset Transfer process will be concluded by the estates and legal teams of Moray Council so there’s still some work to do but Councillor agreement is a major leap forwards.
