  1. I don’t know want I’m going to do now. If these farms go ahead on 3 sides of. Which virtually totally surrounded me. I will never be able to sell my place, and when I die and leave it to my Sons. Again it will be worthless. then they will be left with it which they can’t sell. the best thing is to burn it to the ground and sell the land. ??? I hate Salmond for opening the flood gates for these monsters.

  2. Allow me to look at this from another perspective–if I were to buy a plot of vacant ground within the same distance of an existing Wind Farm, I guarantee I would not get planning permission to build a house on that ground.
