Detail behind the map: More turbines could be set up in the Highlands

Highland Council’s radically revised planning strategy governing windfarms appears to open the way for potentially many more turbines.

The detail of the updated colour coded map has revealed there is potentially significant scope for development in many areas including popular tourist hotspots.

The coding has altered within the Inner Moray Firth, on much of the Black Isle, in the Great Glen, down the south side of Loch Ness, between Nigg and Portmahomack, between Tain and Kildary, on Dava Moor south of Nairn and between Drumnadrochit and Cannich.

Two swathes of countryside beside The Old Man of Storr on Skye are now also fair game.

And even bigger turbines could follow.

The annual Scottish Highland Renewable Energy Conference in Inverness tomorrow will discuss such an option.
