There were celebrations at Galson Trust Estate earlier this month when the community owned turbine was switched on.

Agnes Rennie, Chair of the Trust said: “The energising of the first turbine is a great boost to the Urras and shows it is delivering on its ambition to create a long term sustainable estate in the north west of Lewis.
