Turbine number 8 - Carbost
The ten turbines at the Ben Aketil wind farm each have a name. Ten-year-old Donald Lockhart won a competition run by the Isle of Skye Renewables Co-operative to name the turbines and unveiled a plaque to declare the wind farm open. The names chosen by Donald for the turbines were as follows: Orbost, Eabost, Carbost, Colbost, Skeabost, Husabost, Heribost, Breabost, Prabost and Kirkibost, which are all names of places on Skye.
