Eigg - Our Island

In 1997 the people of Eigg came together to buy the island in a community buy-out, making it the first Scottish island to be owned by its inhabitants. A beautiful and moving film has just been released to share the remarkable story behind the purchase, the islander’s hopes and fears, and ultimately their success. Through testimony from residents of all ages and backgrounds, the film captures the special relationship the people of Eigg have with their home.
