HC Deb 07 December 1926 vol 200 cc1935-6W

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the use to which Conon Lodge, Uig, Skye, was put by the Board of Agriculture; and what were the reasons which led them to offer it for sale?


The Conon Lodge was used by the Board of Agriculture as a residence for their factor. The purchase of further lands in Skye since the passing of the Land Settlement Act of 1919 has made it desirable that the Board's estate office should be situated at a more convenient centre than Uig. The estate administration has accordingly been removed to Portree as from Martinmas, 1926.
