Image for illustrative purposes only.
Drum Hollistan Renewables LLP is looking into the feasibility of developing a wind farm on the Sandside Estate near Reay, Caithness.
Initial feasibility studies realised great potential for wind energy production on the estate and encouraged the business to work on developing a proposal that is both sensitive and appropriate to the local area.
This website is intended to allow news and information related to the proposal to be communicated between the project development team and the surrounding local communities.
The area of search for the wind farm proposal is situated in between the coastal villages of Reay and Melvich in the Scottish Highlands.
The site access would be conveniently located off the A836. This location will help ensure that minimal disturbance would be required to the local road network.
For a more detailed map of the site and it's situation please visit 'Our Proposal' webpage.
