Beinneun wind farm was approved yesterday by Scottish Energy & Tourism Minister, Fergus Ewing. LINK
Beinneun is a 25 x 132m turbine wind farm and will sit westwards of the existing 21 turbine Millennium wind farm, thus creating a wind farm over 6 miles long above Loch Garry in the Western Highlands of Scotland.

TGO Challengers may wish to know that this new huge wind farm is just to the north east of the Tomdoun Hotel, and bites deeply into the Western Highlands. It will be massively visible for miles around.
I would stress that Fergus Ewing, the Energy Minister who approved this is the same chap as the Fergus Ewing who is Minister for Tourism. It beggars belief that VisitScotland (that comes under Ewing’s control) now agree that wind farms are bad for Scottish tourism and yet Ewing still rams more wind farms into the Highlands of Scotland. It’s a complete stitch-up.
