Major wind farm scheme approved
A large-scale wind farm proposed for Lewis has been given the go-ahead by Western Isles councillors.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar's environment committee approved 13 of the 16 planned turbines for Eishken Estate.

Although not big enough to be called in automatically by the Scottish Government, it could be for environmental reasons.

A decision on 181 turbines proposed for Barvas Moor on Lewis remains outstanding.
