Stop Glenmorie Windfarm
We, the undersigned, wish to register our objection to the GLENMORIE wind farm being proposed by Wind Energy. We support the objections lodged already by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, the John Muir Trust and the RSPB. The Munro Ben Wyvis will be surrounded by a “ring of steel” - MCofS unless Glenmorie wind farm is stopped. There are already 65 turbines within 7 miles of this development. The further 34 turbines 125 m high which comprise the Glenmorie development; built on the side of the an iconic mountain in one of the largest tracts of wild land in the Scottish Highlands is a wind farm proposal which should be rejected because of the “significant and adverse cumulative impact” - Scottish National Heritage on Ardross and the glens, famous viewpoints and mountains of Easter Ross. The number of turbines, their size and their prominent location at the head of a largely unspoilt glen on the edge of Wild Land is an inappropriate development, and should be rejected by Ministers. The Glenmorie wind farm will significantly endanger Golden Eagles as identified by the RSPB. We believe these birds should be protected and that the Glenmorie wind farm must not be built so as to save the lives of these birds. The 11 miles of 60’ high pylons associated with this development will go through regions of significant regional landscape value, and areas of national historical and ecological importance. We the undersigned demand that should the windfarm be approved these power cables are buried underground for their entire length. We urge statutory bodies to object to this application and that the Highland Council and the Scottish Government refuse this application.
