Work has begun on Scotland’s first 100% community-owned wind energy project in Dingwall.

Site preparation work is underway with trenches being dug and cables laid at the site at Knockbain Farm, just above the town of Dingwall.

The Dingwall Wind Co-op, which will own and manage a 250kW wind turbine, this week exceeded its target to sell £850,000 shares in the project.

The share offer has been over-subscribed and the co-op has raised nearly £1million from its 170 members, of whom more than 85% live within a ten-mile radius of Dingwall.
