Residents fear a new extension to an electricity substation near Beauly could lead to a return of noise problems which affected them for years.
Highland Council has given the go-ahead for an extension to the 132kv facility at Wester Balblair.
SSEN Transmission says the work is needed due to the sustained increase in electricity generation in the Beauly area.
Kilmorack Community Council opposed the extension, saying the substation had caused a considerable intrusion into residents’ lives visually and from noise nuisance.
One of the main drivers for the development is the need to connect the Loch Luichart extension wind farm at Beauly, due by October 2024.
It will also enable the potential for future renewable connection requirements which will help towards government net zero emissions targets.
