Plans from National Trust of Scotland to rescue and restore Halligarth house to the highest of standards are still in the pipeline. 2015 brought to light a number of public meetings, an option appraisal and restoration site plans. With community support, it was hoped the project can continue to move forward during 2016-18. Unst Partnership, the local development company on the island, is working closely with NTS to try and ensure progress continues. Other partners include Shetland Amenity Trust, who will be responsible for the construction and restoration phases on the project.
