Stronelairg wind farm to go ahead after legal fight

A 67-turbine wind farm looks set to go ahead following a legal battle.

Energy giant SSE has proposed constructing the Stronelairg scheme on land close to its Glendoe hydro electric scheme near Fort Augustus.

Last year, landscape charity the John Muir Trust (JMT) secured a judicial review of the Scottish government’s decision approving the project.

A judge said the decision reached was unlawful, but judges have now upheld an appeal by the government and SSE.

This now opens the way for the wind farm to go ahead.

JMT said it was disappointed by the decision.
