Support from our MEP

Struan Stevenson MEP visited Straiton this morning and spent a couple of hours discussing the wind farm proposals and how it would affect this area. He stated that “Straiton is up there with Plockton as one of the 10 most beautiful villages in Scotland”. He mentioned other iconic Scottish places where wind turbines are threatening to encroach these include Loch Lomond, Turnberry, St Andrews and Loch Ness: “Straiton is up there – this is of national importance.” Struan also told us that Civitas, the independent think tank, reported that wind farms cost jobs in the wider economy. For every 1 ‘green’ job 3 other jobs are lost. He promised his support to our campaign.
