Wind Turbines

working with the community to bring

What is the project?

Winds Of Change is a Charitable Organisation, run by elected trustees which aims to bring benefits to the Cawdor and West Nairnshire Area.

Our main source of funding comes from Nan Clach Ltd., who are the operators of the Tom Nan Clach Windfarm which sits south of Nairn on the Cawdor Estate.


The trustees have the main objective to support projects that make a positive difference to life in the local community.  


Please take a look at this website and if you feel you would like to make an application for funding, then feel free to use the forms which are easily accessible.

community vegetables?

Does the idea of a community polytunnel excite you? Growing our own vegetables and working with groups to learn, help and enjoy the experience... and hopefully have a few carrots to crunch on at the end of the season. This is just one of the ideas we have seen the grants being used for. We are new and excited to hear what your plans may be. If you would like to see what other communities have used the funds for please get inspired and we look forward to receiving your ideas/applications.
