Druim Ba Sustainable Energy has applied to Energy Consents Unit to site 23 turbines of 149.5metres in height within the Blairmore Forest just to the east of the Village of Kiltarlity and just to the North of the Great Glen Way by Loch Ness. To get some idea of scale, the photomontage shows the size of the turbines placed besides the Kessock Bridge. This is but one of the proposed wind factories that will suround Loch Ness in a rim of steel. Aspirations by the tourist group Destination Loch Ness for the area to be granted World Heritage Status look forlorn at the moment. Those that wish to object to the Druim Ba Wind Farm application should go to http://www.druimba-sayno.com/ where all relevant details are posted.

Quote of the Decade
"The trouble with wind farms is that they have a very large spatial footprint for a piddling little bit of electricity. You would need 8oo turbines to produce the output of a coal-fired power station."
Sir Martin Holgate, Chief Scientist at the Department of the Environment of the British Government - October 2004
