Service Details
Established in March 2008, Machrihanish Airbase Community Company was formed by a group of people who shared the same passion and determination to see the airbase facilities used for the benefit of the Kintyre community. Coming from all walks of life, the group included the site’s former Works Service Manager, local business people and other members of the community. Embarking on one of the largest and most complicated community buyouts ever to be seen in Scotland, board members worked tirelessly to gain the support they needed. Four years down the line, MACC finally purchased the estate on May 11, 2012 from the Ministry of Defence for £1. It has been involved in a number of initiatives to engage with and support the local community, both pre and post buyout. It has worked with many local groups, charities and other organisations, offering its assets to facilitate training and events that benefit the local area. Recent examples of this include the annual Mach 1 Stages Rally, a leg of the Scottish Tarmac Rally Championship, which celebrated a successful inaugural event in July 2014, and the MACC Challenge, a military themed obstacle event which MACC have been hosting since November 2014.MACC supports local initiatives by providing grants to local groups on a twice-yearly basis.
