Allt Duine Wind Farm: Time to Object Again

View across Strathspey to the Allt Duine hills
A week ago I was looking across Strathspey from the slopes of Carn Ban Mor in the Northern Cairngorms to the snow-covered Monadh Liath,a soft line of rolling white hills. If the Allt Duine Wind Farm is built this view will be dominated by huge turbines and another part of the glorious wildness of the Scottish Highlands will be lost. Following the rejection of the wind farm proposal by Highland Council the decision is now in the hands of the Scottish Government. A public enquiry is now very likely but the result would not be binding on the government. I think it's important that those of us who feel that this wind farm is very much in the wrong place and should not be built tell the Scottish Government how we feel. Objections can be sent to quoting the application reference 11/00853/S36. There is a template letter on the Save the Monadhliath Mountains website (scroll down to find the link). 


  1. Already done it Chris.
    Nice view, it will be sacrilage if they build it!

  2. Before choosing Allt Duine I believe there must have been an investigation of the suitability of the site and its impact. Does anyone know where I can read this report ?
