Villagers opposed to wind farms

The majority of residents in a crofting village in Lewis are opposed to the building of a large wind farm.

A survey by Marvig Village Association found 78% of 45 residents in Marvig, South Lochs, are against the Beinn Mhor development on Eishken Estate.

The results come a week after Western Isles councillors reaffirmed their support for the £120m 53-turbine plan.

The proposal was called in by the Scottish Executive for a decision on whether it should be approved.
