As a director of Urras Oighreachd Ghabsainn (Galson Estate Trust, Isle of Lewis), Carola has been involved in the process of community land buyout. To sustain the development, Galson are planning to erect the wind turbines to help contribute to carbon reduction and provide an income for future local development.
