Plans have been submitted for a wind farm on the same site in the Borders as a project which was previously rejected by the Scottish government.
Gilston Hill Wind Farm Ltd wants to put up seven turbines on land north west of Gilston Farm, near Heriot.
A 16-turbine project in the same area – straddling the boundary with Midlothian – was turned down in 2013 after an appeal to the Scottish government.
A fresh planning application has now gone to Scottish Borders Council.
Developers said that the new proposals had a “much smaller layout footprint”, which would “dramatically” reduce the landscape impact.
