As at 1st Nov, 2012, applications for thirty seven 100m+ high turbines around the Kirkcudbright area are in various stages of the planning system.  With many additional plans for turbines ranging in height from 39m – 84m, we believe current proposals, almost encircling Kirkcudbright, are a real threat to the local tourism industry.
