Electric Quad

2016 update - after 5 years' service, the quad is in Fort William with a number of things to fix. It may be sometime and we really miss it.  Hopefully some good news to report soon.

2010

The electric quad has now arrived and being charged up by Knoydart Renewables on hydro power!

We've tried it out for a few uses: collecting manure and seaweed for the community garden with the trailer; visiting the campsite and Long Beach and bringing back recycling; and ironically pulling an old landrover out of the shed to go for scrap.  It's interesting how many of its uses are 'green' in themselves; as well as it being a green vehicle in itself.  Quiet too, as well as no emissions!
