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.

  1. Bet it look beauiful in the snow and ice.

    Good news indeed!

  2. Excellent news!I'm sure the publicity you gave this proposal played some part in this decision.
