The Scotsman: Feature on Allt Duine Wind Farm Tomorrow

Looking back across Strathspey to the Northern Cairngorms from the climb to the Allt Duine hills. The track in the picture would become one of the access roads to the turbines. It is in the Cairngorms National Park
Three weeks ago I went up to the site of the proposed Allt Duine wind farm with Roger Cox of The Scotsman newspaper on behalf of the Save the Monadhliath Campaign. The day was overcast and windy with very low cloud and bits of rain - the picture above was taken during one of the clearer periods. Despite this I hope that Roger appreciated the wildness, subtle beauty and solitude of the area and realises the utter destruction of this that would be caused by the wind farm. His feature on our trip and the wind farm will appear in tomorrow's edition of the paper. I'm looking forward to seeing what he has to say.
