Coigach Community Wind Turbine

Why, you may ask, is there a wind turbine in such a beautiful location?

Turning since March 2017 this turbine is owned and operated by the community for the benefit of the community generating clean power from a resource we have in abundance.

Someone once said “you can’t live on a view” and so we are working to create opportunities for our young people and for the future of our community. We have started developing affordable housing, planning improvements to our harbour and providing financial assistance to local community groups.

We are an active and energetic community used to doing things for ourselves and this is a fine example of what we have achieved.
