Uist Wind is putting a shortlist of names for their two wind turbines to the public vote in North Uist.

Six pairs of names have been selected from those submitted by students at Sgoil Uibhist a Tuath following their visit to Uist Wind’s turbines with their teachers and the North Uist Development Company.

Voting slips and ballot boxes have now been placed around North Uist. Or you can register your preference at

The options are:

Turbine 1: Beira, Turbine 2: Brìghde

Turbine 1: Lachlainn làidir, Turbine 2: Liùsaidh làidir

Turbine 1: MacAsgaill, Turbine 2: Mac Cumhaill

Turbine 1: Garaidh gaoithe, Turbine 2: Leagsaidh làidir

Turbine 1: Sgàthach, Turbine 2: Cúchulainn

Turbine 1: Fionn fuamhaire, Turbine 2: Flòraidh fuamhaire

Wisely, the process appears to have eliminated the risk of a popular vote for Windy McTurny.
