This is a very good map especially when you click to enlarge. The story it tells though is extremely disturbing. What is more disturbing is the large number of other schemes in process that have yet to be officially notified to The Highland Council. Also the large quantity of individual on-farm turbines that have been or will be constructed in the next twelve months and are not included in this map. As this is an on-line map we hope that it will be kept up to date on a weekly or at least monthly basis. Just drive through many areas and you see the cumulative impact that these small schemes have. However more concerning is the often close proximity to neighbours. Is it stupidity or arrogance? Farming is just recovering from the negative image of EU troughers lining their pockets with single farm payments while the consumers paid for beef and butter mountains. Not learning from past errors, is the farming community really that urgent to return to those days when farmers were thought little better than estate agents. Most of us don’t but, like always, a few can easily spoil it for the many!

Wind V. Coal
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."
