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
