MSP tables motion to support ‘I Heart Castle Toward Campaign’

Local MSP, Michael Russell, has today tabled a motion in Parliament to support the ‘I Heart Castle Toward Campaign’.

Motion Text: I Heart Castle Toward Campaign

That the Parliament notes the launch of the campaign, I Heart Castle Toward; understands that this has brought together a range of talented and creative individuals, all of whom are aware of the profound and inspirational effect that the castle has had on the generations of young people who were given the opportunity to express themselves in that special place; believes that the campaign hopes to persuade Argyll and Bute Council to halt the sale process to an individual and to open negotiations regarding the purchase of the building with this wider grouping, which seeks to both re-establish it as a centre of excellence for creative education and to involve the community that has worked hard to purchase the property, and urges the leadership of the council to act accordingly and listen to what it believes is the vast majority in and outwith the area who want to see the castle put to these uses.


  1. If you would have asked supporters of Castle Toward four years ago do you think it possible to have not only support from MSPs and a raft of former CT celebs all voicing their support, I think we would have bitten yer hand off, what I’m trying to say Bill is anything is possible!
