Windfarm number 12 is in the pipeline for the Glenkens.


Fife-based Burcote Wind has revealed it is aiming to build 36 turbines at Longburn between Carsphairn and Moniaive in a £130 million scheme.


If the proposal and the other 11 developments currently being worked on are given the go ahead it would take the number of Glenkens turbines to well over 300.


The plans have come under fire from local pressure group Turbine Watch 312 (TW312).


The organisation’s Keith Mycock said: “It is a matter of great concern that more and more windfarm developments are being announced almost weekly.


“There are more than 1,000 large turbines already proposed for Dumfries and Galloway, which will make it one of the regions with the highest number of turbines in the UK.
