Wind farms in Argyll

Yesterday we mentioned a threat to the rare Orange-bellied Parrot, today it is the Golden Eagle... AWF have just sent us this email about the Dunoon wind farm:

Dunoon wind farm, (map ref NS137776) planned by Infinenergy would consist of eight one hundred meter high turbines, the nearest of which would be 2.5km outside and directly visible from the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park - Scotland's first, and one of only two National Parks. The nearest property is only 900m away and there are also potential Golden Eagle issues.

Go to their website, for more information, and a map that shows the wind farms in their area
