On the same site as Linfairn, Statkraft are putting forward a shocking proposal for 12 turbines at 200m in height called Knockcronal. Shocking because Linfairn attracted in excess of 6.5 thousand objections, our MSPs, MP, and Councillors from all political parties were unanimous in their opposition to a wind farm in this location. A local opinion poll recorded 92.5% of those taking part (60%) were opposed to a wind farm at Linfairn.

It would appear that the Developer is not taking local opinion into consideration. As the sheer level of objections show it is not just locals who want to preserve the unique beauty of the upper Girvan valley; objections came from across the UK and the world from those who love and appreciate this beautiful corner of South Ayrshire.
