It’s very hard to get a sense of how big the wind turbines around Straiton might be. I have uploaded to the Gallery page a series of photographs from Whitelee wind farm taken on a sunny day just a week ago. They show people, dogs (and birds) in relation to the Whitelee turbines. The Whitelee turbines now count as babies amongst wind turbines: those in this series of Whitelee photos are 110m high. Most of the turbines proposed around Straiton are around 125m, with a group (those at Keirs Hill) at 150m.
Whitelee wind farm is well worth a visit, as others have already pointed out on this website (see the opinion page): and as they have said, the extensive Fenwick moors on which Whitelee is situated have a completely different landscape quality from the variegated hills and valleys which surround Straiton.
