Kyle of Sutherland Development Trust
Based in Bonar Bridge, the Trust aims to ensure that long-term, sustainable benefits are achieved throughout the Kyle of Sutherland area, using funding from local wind farms. Projects include increasing leisure and outdoor activities available to residents and visitors, supporting local businesses and industries including tourism, fishing and food production and increasing education and training opportunities.
Soirbheas is a community development organisation for Glen Urquhart and Strathglass, receiving income from a part share in the locally-owned Corrimony wind farm to re-invest in the community through a variety of projects, in conjunction with other community groups. One of these was a year-long 'Tattie Project' and another is a High Speed Broadband project in conjunction with Community Broadband Scotland.http://www.soirbheas.org
