Whilst the Reporter for St Andrews wind farm considers that golfers would be concentrating on their golf and not overly concerned at the views of a wind farm towering over them, another Reporter commenting on an application close to Gleneagles and the venue for next years Ryder Cup suggests “that while the turbines would not be visible from the PGA Centenary Course on which the tournament will be played, they would have a negative impact on the area”. In both these cases one sees the dead hand of the SNP leadership casting it’s influence. At St. Andrew’s, as previously mentioned, the University has friends in high places and at Gleneagles the aspiration of the First Minister that this vanity project will support his aims for a positive independence vote. Article here. In both cases the application had been refused by local councils.

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."
