Residents on a remote Scottish island of pristine beaches, lush hills and craggy coastlines celebrated Friday after reaching an agreement to buy their home, fending off bids from tycoons.The five tenants on the Isle of Ulva feared their way of life might be coming to an end after their island was put on the market after decades of ownership by an aristocratic family.But the North West Mull Community Woodland Company (NWMCWC), a group comprised of people living in the local area, succeeded in delaying the sale of the land under a new Scottish law, giving them time to raise the cash.The tenants managed to delay the sale, and on Friday announced they had agreed to buy the island.
