Well! Well! Do I detect a slightly negative attitude from Webcraft to wind turbines.Could this be something to do with the Clachan proposals being on his own doorstep ? He also does not understand that it is the boat owners in places like Ardrossan who desperately need to get away from it all to places like Puilladobhran, where they have peace and quiet.That’s why they bought the boat in the first place !

  • All very commendable but a touch of the old ‘rose tinted spectacles’. Having been in the sailing business on Scotland’s West Coast for almost 20 years and having brought several thousand pleasure sailors here to enjoy its spectacular and world renown sailing waters,I have to point out that due to the industrialisation of these waters, those visitors will fast disappear. You refer to ‘a water corridor’ between mainland and islands, our marinas,our sailing grounds being so attractive, but soon you will have to use the past tense. Craobh Marina is threatened with massive turbines being built on the adjacent hills, Puilladobhrain,probably the most used and popular anchorage in Scotland, is close to having turbines immediately above. All of these will be seen for miles and miles offshore. And of course we have the biggest travesty possible – the Tiree Array – and it won’t stop there. The size of turbines being proposed now means there will be no hiding place as they spread further and further North. If you are not up to date on what is coming please take a look at this short video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taDs8ekhl08

    I don’t withdraw ‘ shear arrogance’ Robert. When the people at ForArgyll actively encouraged so many members of the public to join in open debate online, you don’t just close it down virtually without explanation, and yes, without an Editor it is closed down. Whether there is some advertising income from the little that still exists could be the reason it has not shut totally. The attitude reminds me of a landowner who treats his tenants in the same manner – “Its mine, all mine,so I will do as I want – you don’t matter”.
    PS. Was there any public money subsidising ForArgyll ?

    Wouldn’t we all Bob. To me it was shear arrogance for all those involved in producing ForArgyll to walk out without a full explanation to those of us who had contributed to making it what it was over the years.

    Just been revealed that 8 of the top ten travel expenses claims, have been from SNP MPs – and Mhairi Black is not even one of them this time with her £350 single flight costs from London City Airport. These 8 have cost £239,366 MORE, repeat MORE, than the MPs who held the seat before them. These are the people ScotsRenewables touches his forelock to. Come back LINDA – we desperately need your input again.

    Is this site being kept alive so that Charles can get some income from the adverts ? ?

    I wonder how many SNP MSPs there would be if the thumbs up/thumbs down figures applied to Salmon’s posts were reflected at Holyrood. The figures of course posted by real people not the SNP drones who have filled the top half of this page as instructed by their desperate mistress Sturgeon.
