The Glenshero development site sits immediately south of the Stronelairg wind farm site.  It could comprise up to 40 turbines with a maximum tip height of 135m and has the potential to impact on three of Scotland's official Wild Land Areas:-

  • WLA19 Braeroy – Glenshirra-Creag Meagaidh
  • WLA20 Monadhliaths
  • WLA14 Rannoch-Nevis – Mamores-Alder

The aim of the scoping process is "to provide advice and guidance to developers which has been collated from expert consultees whom the Scottish Government has consulted. It should provide clear advice from consultees and enable developers to address the issues they have identified and address these in the Environmental Impact Assessment Process (EIA) and the EIA report associated with the application for section 36 consent."
