In 2019 we actively started to plan for a cluster of 8 “Section75” (affordable housing) flats on the North Whins (NW) site of Duneland, in the Findhorn Ecovillage.
Here’s the timeline!

North Whins is designed as a worthy addition to our portfolio of affordable homes. The portfolio consists of the relatively big East Whins (EW) homes and the smaller one bed-room West Whins (WW) cluster.
We are looking to fundraise £500,000 for this project. Thank you for considering this project for a donation or a loan. For details about donations, see here ; for loans, please [email protected] ℅ Fundraising.
We have — again — secured a major grant from the Scottish Ministers, and are not needing to attract donations and loans from within and without the community. However, our long-term debts have increased, for which speedier-than-planned relief we’d love to receive donations! The land has already been effectively gifted by the community colleagues at Duneland Ltd. (ie sold for a nominal fee).
The allocation process for these latest flats is similar to (but updated visàvis) those used in the previous projects. read more ….
Construction was originally planned to commence in March/April 2020. But with the 2020/1 C19pandemic, groundbreaking only started in Jan 2021!
