A man has died after he became stranded while working at a wind farm as snow blanketed much of the country.

The 74-year-old man and a 42-year-old colleague were left without heat or power as they worked at a wind farm near Craigdarroch Farm, New Cumnock in East Ayrshire on Sunday.

The Police Scotland Mountain Rescue Team went to the scene after the two men raised the alarm at around 8.50pm on Sunday.

The 74-year-old man was flown by helicopter to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary where he died a short time later.

Police and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are carrying out a joint investigation into the incident.

An HSE spokesman said: “HSE is aware and making initial inquiries alongside police.”
