A new addition to the North Tolsta sky-line is now standing proud as the Tolsta Community Development wind turbine was put in place last month.
Situated in Glen Tolsta, some 130m to the left-hand side of the road opposite Loch Beinn Thearabeirt, the turbine towers over the gateway into North Tolsta village at a height of 55m - and up to 81m to blade tip height.
The weight of the turbine - which was delivered in three sections - is over 60 tons.
Around 280 Tolsta residents voted in favour of the £1.5million renewable energy scheme; and the wind turbine’s installation is the culmination of a two year project.
Gazette reader Mr D.M Barry, from North Tolsta, took the impressive photos in this slideshow as the turbine construction took place between May 8th and 24th.
