Glenmoriston is one of two iconic “Roads to the Isles” of north western Scotland, from Loch Ness to the Isle of Skye and beyond. This Highland glen is famous not only for its scenery but also for its exceptional range of plant and animal life which includes golden eagles, ospreys, otters and pine martens. Recent surveys by an environmental charity located here have revealed ‘a lost world of biodiversity’ on the wild hills beside the glen.
The tranquility of our glen is seriously threatened by the latest proposal, from the German company E.ON, for a massive array of turbines, taller than the tallest buildings in Scotland, that will completely dominate the high southern hills above the glen.
The above map shows the cumulative impact of the development of current, consented and proposed windfarms in Glenmoriston.
We greatly value the numerous expressions of support we have received from Scotland and beyond. The strength of feeling against the destruction of our splendid Highland environment will greatly assist our cause.
