Comment posted Quarrying at Glensanda: aggregating aggregates by Robert Wakeham.
Would make a good set for the next James Bond movie, but ideally the baddies would disappear into the mincing machine and that would be best achieved as the ship is unloaded and the cargo sinks into the hoppers at the base of the hold.

- Surely the difference with the wind industry is that it’s creeping over the surface of the country – and the surrounding seas – like some contagion that risks getting out of control, whereas Glensanda is an admittedly very large scale operation but in a carefully chosen area of a landscape big enough to contain it. Yes, it can be surprisingly visible – for example from the road through Glen Nant, 20 miles away – but it’s surely not the ‘total destruction of a huge swathe of countryside’, and it does have a certain grandeur in its sheer scale.

I wonder if next year’s introduction of much stricter anti-pollution laws to enforce the use of low sulphur marine diesel fuel oil will increase the costs of ‘traditional’ ferries and make more sense of the economics of the new hybrids?

You, and Andrew Argyle, might have a point – John Sinclair’s posts (remember him?) were very evangelistic, and I think that he probably represented a substantial body of the nationalist mindset.

And all because local councillors choose to identify themselves with national party politics.
