(In an area that has a broch, cairns and standing stones.)

Oof - that's pretty grim, isn't it?

Bloody hell - I'm all for wind power, but they don't half choose their locations, don't they? There's a massive offshore one planned between the isle of Wight and Swanage - personally, I think it'll be quite an amazing sight! And it doesn't interfere with any archaeology or owt. But I've not seen any artist's impressions yet, so 'll reserve judgement fully till then.

Offshore's gotta be better though, hasn't it? The company reckon they're well into conservation of sealife as well, so hopefully that's legit.

Windfarms in the sea do work. There was supposed to be one at Balmedie Bay but Trump and his cronies managed to somehow get that overturned because of his effin golf course. drewbhoy Posted by drewbhoy
