Big Guns in Action

The most westerly area of Barra experienced characteristic blustery conditions for the opening of the 900 kw wind turbine in Western Europe last Friday. The Stornoway Gazette has an item and a video of the occasion when the retired local priest, the Revd Canon Angus MacQueen, unveiled a plaque. The account on the web describes him as 'Cannon' - a typo suitable for a powerful player in community matters, since he started his ministry on the island in 1952.

Can anyone help with an English translation of 'Spagan' the name of the turbine? Using an online Gaelic/English service I found only 'spag' = paw or limb. Is that it? Richard Clubley
