UPDATE: Great news! The Scottish Government has refused consent for Glencassley and Sallachy wind farms - however Caplich is still to be decided.
Wild Land Area 34 in the far north of Scotland is one of 42 Wild Land Areas recognised last year by the Scottish Government as nationally important.
But this special place is under threat from three large wind farms - Glencassley, Sallachy and Caplich. Together these could mean 65 turbines, each three times higher than the Skye Bridge, with many visible from famous peaks such as Stac Pollaidh and Ben More Assynt.
Under new Scottish planning policy, Wild Land Areas have a degree of protection from wind farm development. We need your help to persuade the Scottish Government to make the right decision and refuse consent for these developments, thereby upholding the principles of the Wild Land Areas map.
