The Earl of Cromartie is a very experienced climber, Past President of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland and present President of the Scottish Mountaineering Club. He has written a number of books on climbing in Scotland and he has a world renowned collection of Agates which he regularly lectures about. His home is Castle Leod in the Highlands, one of the oldest lived in castle in Scotland. In an attempt to keep it standing he opens it to the public on a limited number of days a year and hosts weddings. He is also a long time opponent of wind farms and a fanatical protector of our wild places. Trained as a geologist he is also an explosives expert, which may come in useful when the wind turbines have served their time. For now he is one of a growing number of land owners, hefted to the land we may say, that see wind not as a opportunity for wealth but as a destruction of the wealth below our feet and all around us. And his words have received support from Kerry Gill, Scottish Political Editor in the Daily Express, who points the finger at our not very esteemed leader.
Whose analysis of the political morass which is the SNP makes interseting, if rather disturbing reading.
