Altercannoch wind farm

Find out why we were concerned about an application for a wind farm at Altercannoch in South Ayrshire

In 2016 the Trust objected to this wind farm due to visual impact on Wild Land Area 1 (Merrick), its cumulative effect on the WLA and peat issues. Following South Ayrshire Council's refusal of the application in November 2017 the developer lodged an appeal against the Council's decision. In March 2019 we learnt that the Scottish Government reporter had dismissed the appeal.
