Common Good 

In Scotland, Common Good property are assets (land, building or items) that were granted to or acquired by former Royal burgh in Scotland for the benefit of the community.  The Common Good Act 1491 provided legal status to Common Good and created an obligation that assets be managed for the benefit of the citizens of the burgh.  This obligation is still in force today, although the assets are owned and managed by the local authority, in our case The Highland Council. 

From The Highland Council website 2023:

"Outside Inverness, Common Good Funds have limited resources and may not be able to fund community projects....Fortrose (and) Rosemarkie are currently closed to grant applications."
