Wolf is at the door  

Credit:  Letters: Herd mentality among tourists is ruining Scotland | The Herald | 22nd August | www.heraldscotland.com ~~

The Wolf of Badenoch built his impressive fortress in the middle of Lochindorb. In the 13th century he plundered what was precious and beautiful throughout Moray, including Elgin Cathedral, the resulting conflagration known as the Lantern of the North.

As with the cathedral, the castle lies in ruins, occupying an island in the middle of open moorland at Lochindorb. It is a hauntingly beautiful, historic, romantic setting, much-loved by all who picnic by its peaceful, sparkling waters.

It is now being encroached on by the wind energy industry, flagged on by the SNP, which is supposed to protect our beautiful countryside. The giant Danish turbines of Tom nan Clach windfarm will appear on the horizon, towering400 feet high, destroying the tranquil vistas.

Smoke-belching lorries will trundle down the A9 to place the “clean-green” components on their 1000-ton “clean green” concrete bases, dumped on a precious, carbon-storing, upland ecosystem.

Despite public protestations about the glaring stupidity and the inexorable rise in our energy bills, this destructive Wolf cannot be kept from the door.

George Herraghty,

Lothlorien, Lhanbryde, Moray.
