Moray is seen as the gateway to whisky country and a significant proportion of Moray's economic wealth depends on tourism. We already have two major windfarm developments at Pauls Hill and Cairn Uish and several more in the pipeline and we view the proposal to build yet another at Brownmuir as a windfarm too far. This proposal is for up to 19 turbines, each 125 metres high to be built on Brownmuir Hill which is adjacent to the main A941 which links Elgin with the major tourist areas of the Cairngorms. Many tourist pounds are spent here because of the beauty of our landscape and at a time when one of our local RAF bases has been closed we should not be building anything which may have deter tourists from coming to the area and spending money in local businesses. The Brownmuir proposal should be refused.
