Plans to build five turbines on the outskirts of Watten have been given the green light.

Whirlwind Renewables has received planning permission to go ahead with construction of Achlachan wind farm.

Highland Council approved plans for five turbines, each 115 metres tall.

The site is located on moorland south of Mybster to the west of Causewaymire wind farm. According to Whirlwind Renewables’ website, once construction is completed the turbines will provide power to more than 8400 homes and generate up to 10 megawatts.

Company spokesman Jake Surman said: “We are delighted to receive planning consent for this amendment to the consented Achlachan wind farm.

“It will allow the project to generate a greater amount of green clean energy helping the Scottish government achieve its renewable energy targets.

“This permission slightly amends an existing consent and allows the installation of more modern efficient turbines with higher energy yields for a small increase in height of 5m.

“We anticipate the Achlachan Wind Farm will be operational by the end of next year.

“Construction has already started.”
