A few short months ago the iconic Ben Wyvis had an application by Falk/Coriolis turned down for the Clath Liath wind farm. Unbelievably a new carpetbagger, PI Renewables, are now applying for a 19 turbine wind farm on this mountain. Is this fair that local residents have to go through all the pain and anguish and cost of raising another campaign to kick this into the long grass? Scottish Government should step in and clearly state that this is not a suitable place. After all the “Scottish Government Spokesperson” is always saying the wind farms will not be built in such unsuitable places, or do they lie and accept that continual applications wear opposition down. See the plan And if this is bad enough I am informed that a second application for the area is in process. More information shortly!

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."
