Budding photographers showcase their work in the Aultguish Tourism Bothy

Renewable energy company, Eneco UK is pleased to announce the winners of their Lochluichart Wind Farm photography competition. Local amateur photographers were given the opportunity to photograph the wind farm known locally as the ‘Spinny Turners’. The competition was open to two categories; under and over 16’s. The judges included Ross-shire Journal photographer Gary Anthony and Eneco’s Managing Director, Guy Madgwick.

The winners are - Zoe Cuthbertson (under 16) and Claire Winchester (over 16)

The winners have both won a camera and their work will now be displayed in the Aultguish Tourism Bothy, sponsored by Eneco from September 2015. The Aultguish Tourism Bothy details information about the Aultguish panorama , local history and things to do and see in the area.

The competition included a visit to the wind farm. This enabled the photographers a unique opportunity to capture a number of shots from various locations that they wouldn’t normally have had access to. The Spinny Turners officially opened in May 2014 and was named by the pupils of Strathgarve Primary School at an inaugural ceremony with guest from the local community in attendance. The wind farm generates 69MW of power from 23 turbines.

Guy Madgwick, Managing Director of Eneco UK says; “I would like to congratulate the winners for their incredible photographs and for taking the time to visit the windfarm. Their work will be a great point of interest at the Aultguish Tourism Bothy. We felt Zoe’s photograph captured the wind farm within the beautiful Highland setting and we were impressed with Claire’s clever use of graphics”.
