Crofters Legal Vow On Wind Farm
Crofters have vowed to take legal action in their fight against a 176-turbine wind farm on Isle of Lewis.
The wind farm has been proposed for BARVAS MOOR on Lewis..
Crofters said they had notified the Scottish Land Court of their stance.
LWP - a joint venture between AMEC and British Energy - said in a statement it "understood and respected" the rights of crofting communities.
Crofters on the Barvas and Galson estates have written to the Scottish Executive
Environment and Rural Affairs Department (Seerad) declaring their intention to oppose the £500m project.
Their neighbours on the Cross Skigersta fishermen's holdings were backing
their fight, said the crofters.
