Mountain group in new windfarm fight
Bookmark and Share
A pressure group formed to fight one proposed windfarm near the Cairngiorms National Park boundary has now turned its attention to another proposal in the area.

Save the Monadhliath Mountains was originally set up to combat the Allt Duine windfarm, which would have been situated just 400 metres from the western edge of the area.

Now it is seeking to stop a planned 83-turbine development at Garrogie Estate, near Fort Augustus.

Spokesman and former president of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland Chris Townsend said: "The Stronelairg windfarm would represent another blow to the sensitive landscape of the Monadhliath Mountains and the Cairngorms National Park's special qualities."

Outdoor lovers who like to go walking in the range can bag a number of Munros in the area, such as Beinn Dearg, Carn Sgulain and A' Chailleach, as well as Corbetts such as Cran an Freaceadain.

The Mountaineering Council of Scotland has called for the Scottish government to prohibit the constrction of windfarms on Munros and Corbetts.
