Birks of Aberfeldy Hydro Scheme Rejected
Last autumn I described the threat of a hydro scheme in the beautiful ravine of the Birks of Aberfeldy (see posts for November 12, November 22 and December 16). Now I am very pleased to say that the committee of the Common Good Fund, which owns the Birks on behalf of the local community, has rejected it. The developers will probably propose a modified version of the scheme but for the moment the water will continue to flow unchecked through the Birks.
