Point & Sandwick wind turbines, 2018

By John MacLean, 15/01/2020


On this date two years ago I was photographing the Point and Sandwick Trust wind turbines (Beinn Ghrideag) on the outskirts of Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, for The Guardian. In contrast to the current wet and windy weather in Lewis, conditions then were extremely cold and crisp, with occasional heavy hail showers ripping across the landscape.

Point and Sandwick Trust was named 2018 UK Social Enterprise of the Year and uses income from the community wind project to help fund community projects across the island.
