WIND FARM DEVELOPMENT & TOURISM IN STRAITON; a case-study in tourist provision for the Galloway Forest and Dark Sky Park.
It has been sent by post and email to around forty policy makers, planners and politicians, as well as colleagues, friends and interested local parties.

Although many of the report’s concerns about the harm posed by wind farms to tourism in Straiton overlap with those of the Save Straiton campaign, it is a personal take by the authors and they don’t claim to represent any of the other tourist businesses in Straiton. Consequently the printing and postage was privately funded by the authors and didn’t use any campaign funds.
It contains lots of interesting information about Straiton not available elsewhere and lots of nice historic quotes about how beautiful people have found our village over the centuries. Plus some good arguments about why we should preserve this beautiful landscape. We hope you find it a good read!
