Comrie Development Trust in west Perthshire has launched a share offer to give people the opportunity to invest in the last WWII high security POW camp in the UK.

Known as Camp 21, Cultybraggan has been recognised by Historic Scotland as a unique historic environment with international significance. In 2007 the community of Comrie acquired it from the army with the aim of making sure it survived intact. Now, thanks to funding from Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Scottish and Southern Energy, the development trust will be able to refurbish some of the vacant buildings. The trust has launched a share offer in addition to this funding to help them transform these buildings into a bunkhouse and self-catering accommodation.

Plunkett Scotland has been working with the trust alongside partners including Development Trust Association Scotland to work up their business plan and develop their share offer document. People can invest between £25 and £5,000 and will be helping the community to take an enterprising approach to preserving this important site, making sure income is generated to maintain the huts for the long term.
