Ulva School Community Association

About USCA

Ulva School Community Association was formed in 2011 to give the people in and around Ulva Primary School a say in the future plans for the area.

The Association grew out of the succesful fight to save our local primary school from closure.

Our aims are:

  • To provide support for the school in whatever form the Association agrees is appropriate and practical.
  • To advance community development, including rural regeneration within the Community.
  • To manage community land and associated assets for the benefit of the Community and the public in general.
  • To advance the education of the Community about its environment, culture, heritage and/or history.
  • To provide, or assist in providing, recreational facilities, and/or organising recreational activities, which will be available to members of the Community and public at large with the object of improving the conditions of life of the Community.

Our area

The USCA area consists of the coastal community of Ulva Ferry and Torloisk on the north-western seaboard of Mull, along with the neighbouring islands of Ulva and Gometra 

It includes some of the most stunning land and seascapes in the UK and much of it is designated a National Scenic Area.

However, like a lot of scenically stunning areas we have a problem with the lack of affordable family housing.

Without affordable family housing there will be few resident children and the school will be perpetually threatened.

Yet as we are a highly dispersed rural community the school is our only community building.

USCA aims to reinvigorate and develop the area in a sustainable and environmentally sensitive way.
