Objections over wind power plan 

Plans for new wind turbines would have a “severe” effect on a North-east area, according to a conservation group.

Historic Scotland has objected to the scheme for two turbines at Strath of Brydock, Alvah, near Banff, because it says the project is too close to Grade A-listed Inchdrewer Castle.

Now Aberdeenshire councillors, who will decide on a planning application for the project, want to see the area first.

Historic Scotland has argued that the turbines would spoil the currently clear vista. Aberdeenshire planners are also concerned by the effect on the wider landscape.

Councillors are due to visit the site next week, and the application will be considered at a future meeting of the Banff and Buchan area committee.

The 16th century castle is owned by Robin de la Lanne-Mirrlees, laird of Great Bernera in the Outer Hebrides.
