Muaitheabhal wind farm

Published: 4th 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 the developer ENGIE (formerly GDF SUEZ) announced it was discontinuing its plans to build the wind farm due to external delays, in particular the Western Isles transmission link. However, it is still possible that the development will go ahead.
