How We Started

In 2006 Storas Uibhist acquired the South Uist Estate through a community land buyout. The 93,000 acres of land we own is managed through a trading subsidiary Storas Uist Ltd, The company’s object is to benefit this community through rural regeneration, and its development staff are working to realise a major 3 turbine 6.9MW wind turbine project that has the potential to generate up to £1m annually to invest in the area’s further development

What We Do

We have developed the historic Askernish Golf course and the estate’s sporting activities (fresh water fisheries, stalking, wildfowling and Grogarry Lodge0. This has created considerable spin off for the wider local economy and community. In addition to smaller local developments, we are now concentrating on progressing/co-coordinating the community wind turbine project, a strategic redevelopment of the harbour area of Lochboisdale, a businesses renewbles scheme, and office provision in Daliburgh.
