ScottishPower Renewables have submitted an application for the first of their proposed wind farms in the Galloway Forest Park.
Clauchrie is between Barr and Glentrool and consists of 18 turbines at a whopping 200m high. They will be clearly visible from the Straiton walks and have serious negative impacts on the landscape, Wild Land, Biosphere, Dark Sky Park plus other walks and cycle routes. This has implications for residents and visitors to Straiton. We are busy studying the application in detail and will let you know how you can make your representations.
