Muaitheabhal wind farm

Published: 5th May 2005

Updated October 2014: Read why we are concerned about the proposed Muaitheabhal/Eisgein/Beinn Mhor wind farms in the Outer Hebrides.

We have been involved in opposing a series of applications for wind farm development on the Eisgein estate on Lewis and participated in a Public Local Inquiry. In July 2013 we opposed a further application to extend the two consented wind farms.  See our various submissions in the downloads below.

In October 2014 ENGIE’s (formerly GDF SUEZ) announced it was discontinuing its plans to build the 130MW wind farm on Eishken due to external delays, in particular the Western Isles transmission link.
