Machrihanish Airbase Community Company

Run by the community, for the community, we are the group that purchased the former RAF Machrihanish on the Kintyre peninsula for £1 from the Ministry of Defence.

Maximising benefit for our local area, our vision is to build a prosperous and sustainable future for our community by unlocking the potential of our properties and assets and acting as a platform for socio-economic growth in Kintyre.

We aim to work with local groups, businesses and entrepreneurs in exploring new ventures, events and innovative uses for the site, whilst steering the future development of the park in order to attract inward investment from diverse industries; creating more job opportunities and long term benefits for future generations.

Our unique properties and assets are available to let from MACC Developments Ltd, the trading arm of our company, with the park offering a secure and flexible location for a vast array of commercial developments, TV, film and events.

Our site has been shortlisted as one of eight potential locations for a UK Spaceport.
Please visit Discover Space UK for updates on our bid.
