A turf cutting ceremony for the Muitheabhal Wind Farm took place today (Tuesday).

Work is due to begin on the road as soon as next month. Speakers at the ceremony included Comhairle Leader Angus Campbell and landowner Nick Oppenheim.

Around 100 people gathered for the occasion including the newly elected trustees of the Community Wind Farm Trust.

The election took place last week with seven trustees elected to the board. They will meet for the first time in the coming weeks to discuss how to take forward a community project.
