The Sallachy and Glencassley Wind farms in Sutherland have been refused by the Scottish Ministers on the basis of visual impacts and Wild Land. SSE are disappointed.
Sallachy and Duchally Estates in Sutherland had proposed constructing 22 turbines.
Energy giant SSE sought permission for 23 turbines at Glencassley Estate near Lairg.
Scottish ministers said the projects would have had an “unacceptable impact” on wild land. SSE said it was “very disappointed” by the decision.
