Scotland's richest man steps in to save Clan Mackay's Highland museum from crisis

Sep 29, 2022

Anders Holch Povlsen, a Danish businessman who owns 12 estates in the Highlands, has secured the redevelopment of Strathnaver Museum, which tells the story of the history of Clan Mackay. Now, the museum is back on track to re-open next summer after Wildland Ltd, a company wholly owned by Mr Povlsen agreed the loan to cover legal fees and cashflow while the matter was resolved. Tom Mackay, Chair of Strathnaver Museum, which tells the story of the history of Clan Mackay, said the project may have been shelved “indefinitely” if the “immediate and vital” financial support had not been made available. Mr Mackay said: "I am enormously grateful for the support of fellow trustees who have managed to resolve the title issue so quickly and to the full satisfaction of legal officers and our core funders.”
