Strathy North

Ships are delivering 100’s of tonnes of felled timber to the quay at Wick on a weekly basis. It is loaded onto lorries and taken to Strathy North to provide foundations for turbine pads. As we know, blanket peat bog is not the ideal surface for structural engineering purposes. However, throw enough funds at it and anything can be achieved. Another ‘green’ masterstroke by Scottish Ministers…This technique was used by the railways to cross Rannoch Moor in the dim and distant past. Now we question the morallity of such behaviour.
