A 14-turbine wind farm proposed for Skye has been unanimously approved by Highland councillors.

Crofters have been working with Perth-based Kilmac Construction on the Glen Ullinish Wind Farm.

The development involves installing turbines between Ose and Struan at Allt Dughaill on Skye and could generate enough power for 23,000 properties.

Members of the north planning committee approved the planning application at a meeting Dingwall.
