An estimated 4 Billion viewers from all over the world tuned in to watch the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As the Royal Cortege departed from Balmoral the aerial views beamed across the world showed the true magnificence of our glorious Deeside.  

It is therefore, simply too awful to contemplate the damage another array of 17 giant, industrial wind turbines proposed on the adjacent Hill of Fare will inflict on Royal Deeside.  

Consider the true horror of these 840 ft monsters, almost as high as the Eiffel Tower, twice the size of the London Eye. They are effectively offshore machines being sneaked onshore to satisfy the insatiable greed of the wind industry.  

The farcical, industry claims that larger turbines are more ‘efficient’ could not be further from the truth. Current turbines blades have been tweaked, over many years, to the Nth degree, but the inexorable laws of physics demand that all that can now be done is to make the turbines even larger, even more damaging, even more space consuming, even more unsightly and, with blades that travel in excess of 200mph, even more lethal to wild life. This is simply another load of Whoppers from the wind industry!  

It must be asked what sort of supremely idiotic politicians actually support the destruction of what must be the Jewel in the Crown of all Scottish Landscapes?  

Yours, aghast at the proposed destruction
