Anti-Hippie Defences at Scoraig

This sculpture was built in the early 1970s from old cart wheels. The body of water behind it is Little Loch Broom.

The area came to prominence in the late 1970s when Hugh Piggott established Scoraig Wind Electric which produced small wind turbines to supply power to the properties on the peninsula. To this day, wind is still the main source of power-generation. Most of the residents support themselves through traditional activities such as crofting, fishing, weaving and vegetable-growing.
