Historic Scotland opposing Eassie wind turbine plan

A major consultee has objected to a single-turbine development in the Angus countryside.

A 77-metre turbine is planned for land at Ingliston Farm, Eassie, and an application has been submitted to Angus Council.

However, Historic Scotland has objected, with officer Rory McDonald airing concerns about the turbine’s effect on the setting of three scheduled monuments.

The turbine would be located 500m north of the Castleward burial mound and 1.1km to the west of the Denoon Law fort and Wester Denoon burial mound.

Mr McDonald states: “These monuments are of national importance as well-preserved burial cairns which have the potential to enhance considerably our understanding of prehistoric burial and ceremonial practices.

“Its importance is enhanced because there are possibly related mounds on the ridge line and on nearby hilltops.”

Despite the offer of Locogen, agents for applicant William Shaw, to reduce the turbine’s size by 10m, Historic Scotland said the national importance of the monuments outweighs national policy on wind energy.
