The state of peat in the Nesting hills
Published on December 8th 2013
To the east of the Lang Kames road is a large expanse of hills not seen by many people other than crofters and environmentalists. Much of the peat cover in this part of North Nesting is eroding severely and emitting carbon dioxide. Viking Energy is to build turbines in this area and embark on an ambitious programme of peat restoration.
