Does anyone know why the three wind turbines on Gigha are called "The Dancing Ladies"?

From wikipaedia,


[edit]Wind turbines
See also: Wind power in Scotland
The Heritage Trust set up Gigha Renewable Energy Ltd. to buy and operate three Vestas V27 wind turbines, known locally as The Dancing Ladies or Creideas, Dòchas is Carthannas (Gaelic for Faith, Hope and Charity).[53] They were commissioned on 21 January 2005 and are capable of generating up to 675 kW of power. Revenue is produced by selling the electricity to the grid via an intermediary called Green Energy UK. Gigha residents control the whole project and profits are reinvested in the community.[54]

I've always assumed it was just a descriptive name referring to their movement.
