It’s easy to think in the abstract when considering the pros and cons of wind farms on Scottish landscapes. I thought it was about time we looked at the reality on the ground.
The following maps show the full extent of what has been built or approved (in red), what is currently being considered in the planning system (brown) and what is being “scoped for opinion”, prior to applying for planning permission. These maps were dated August 2012, so there will now be more wind farms to add to the maps.
You can click on each map and index to blow them up to a much larger size.
I would be interested in your opinions, so please leave a comment.
