Conservation charity the John Muir Trust has raised an objection to a proposed windfarm in the Scottish Highlands, an issue those who like to go walking may have strong views on.

The planned Glenmorie windfarm would be situated on the Kildermorie and Glencalvie estates in Sutherland and the objection is based on the fact some of the turbines will be close to the edge of an area identified by Scottish Natural Heritage as a search area for wild land.

A diminishing amount of unspoiled land in Scotland is an issue the Trust is concerned about and it argues this will be reduced further by the development, which is situated on land that can be viewed from peaks such as Ben Wyvis and the Fannaichs.

Another controversy over a windfarm concerns a proposed set of turbines that would lie just outside the Cairngorms National Park.

The park authority is just one of the groups fighting the plans, alongside the Save the Monadhliath Mountains campaign.
