Highland Wind Farm Activity – May 2011

The Druim Bà Wind Farm Application for 23 turbines with maximum blade height tips of 149.5m was submitted. RWE npower Renewables submitted their application to the Scottish Ministers for a site at Allt Duine, north of Kincraig. The 93MW proposal of 31 turbines with blade tip heights of up to 125m did not get support from the nearby Cairngorms National Park Authority.

Glenkirk was recalled, due to objections by CNPA, to be considered along with Tom nan Clach. Carbon Free eventually applied for 20 turbines with blade tip heights of around 126m near Moy.

Scotrenewables have sought a Review of the Refusal of their second Hill of Lieurary application. SSE Renewables have requested Scoping Opinions for large projects, either side of Loch Ness, one at Balmacaan and the other at Stronelairg. Over 100 turbines of 135m tip height are being suggested for each site. SSE Renewables are Scoping at Glencassley, again a major project.
