MALLAIG, SCOTLAND - 29TH OCTOBER 2007: Wind turbine parts are carried on the "Spanish John" landing craft 10 miles from the Scottish mainland to the Hebredian island of Eigg. Once erected on Eigg, the four 6KW wind turbines will contribute significantly to the Hebredean island's new electricity system which is based on renewable energy. It will provide continuous 24 hours a day power for the island's 87 residents for the first time. The island has no electricity connection with the mainland.
