Back in March of this year, I posted on the blog how the Monadhliath Mountains were to be ringed in a steel fortress of wind turbines. I showed the following map, which shocked quite a few people: I have just edited this with the help of Brenda from the Caithness Windfarms Information Forum who very kindly added the numbers of turbines for each scheme.
In that post I put up a map of the proposed Balmacaan turbine layout which was quite shocking. At the time I could not find the turbine layout for Stronelairg.
Well – I have now. Brace yourselves:
Map is clickable.
These turbines are even bigger than those for Dunmaglass. These babies will be 135m tall to tip. That’s 443 feet tall. I haven’t counted but I would guess there are about a hundred and forty of them.
