Mountaineering group in windfarm appeal
Bookmark and Share
The Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCoS) has appealed to those who like to go walking and climbing to take a more active stance against windfarms.

It has appealed to its members to oppose the Sallachy Windfarm, a 22-turbine installation near Loch Shin in the northern Highlands and has asked for its members to write with their objections to the Scottish government's energy consents unit.

The MCoS said it has already objected but believes this alone will not be enough to stop it.

According to the body, the turbines would be visible from a number of Munros and Corbetts in the region, such as Ben More Assynt, Arkle, the three Corbetts of Quinag, Ben Klibreck, Ben Hope, Ben Hee, Beinn Leoid and Seana Bhraigh.

One recent victory for those against the building of windfarms in Scotland came when the Highland Council voted against the creation of a 31-turbine installation in the Monadhliath Mountains, just outside the Cairngorms National Park.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801276868-ADNFCR
