Anti-windfarm campaign gains support
Bookmark and Share
Two leading writers on mountains and the outdoors in Scotland have joined a campaign opposing the establishment of a new windfarm on the Monadhliath Mountains, at a site just 400 yards from the Cairngorms National Park boundary.

The site at Allt Duine near Kincraig would have 31 turbines if the plans go ahead, but Chris Townsend has been joined by Cameron McNeish in supporting the Save the Monadhliath Mountains campaign.

A number have bodies have submitted formal objections, including Scottish Natural Heritage, the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency, the John Muir Trust and the Mountaineering Council of Scotland.

Mr McNeish said: "If this proposal goes ahead, it will adversely affect the wildness and wildlife in the Monadhliath Mountains, threatening the unique character and natural beauty of this area."

The range sits on the western edge of the national park, with the actual boundary line coinciding with the summits of some peaks.

Munros in the area include Beinn Dearg, A'Chailleach and Carn Sgulain.
