Comment posted Now see for yourself: For Argyll challenges anyone to say SPR plans for Argyll Array at Tiree are acceptable by Rob Trythall.

This is very subjective

Of course there are certain houses in specific spots on Tiree that will have a very limited view of the Array . Of course any house at the bottom of one of Tiree’s 3 small hills (145m)will have a limited view of the proposed Array (200m) .

From my own house, from the ground floor I will see only the tops of the closer turbines, but from my upstairs, I will will see a considerable portion of the total Array.

Your “view” can be put in its true Tiree visual perspective if any reader goes to the ‘Visualisations’ page of the NTA w/site and clicks on the OBAN TIMES VIDEO This was made incorporating the SPR visualisations that SPR have now posted on their w/site.

The visual evidence of the negative visual impact of the proposed Array is all there to see,and might explain why it has taken 11 attritional months to get SPR to produce these what they could have done 11 moths ago

And SPR’s reason for this 11 months refusal
was quote ” It’s not consumer friendly to put such large files on line”unquote

Maybe SPR should let the consumer judge what is unfriendly .

    Not a bleat. Scottish Govt Ferry provision has a problem

    I suggest you re-read the SNP’s manifesto of promises for the 2014 Referendum, to correct your obvious ignorance of what the SNP pledged it would offer an Independent Scotland re Ferry service provision. The SNP only pledged to deliver its 2012 Ferry Plan . That makes no offer of 24 hr services
    on summer routes. SNP government is currently failing to deliver its 2012 Ferry Plan.

    Accepting your premis that a 24 hr ferry service would be a ‘given’ in an Independent Scotland, it would appear from this article by Alex Neil, (Former SNP cabinet Minister) this gonna be a long timing coming, if ever.

    Oh ..and by the way ….Norway’s coastal ferries, unlike Scotland’s, are NOT run, and owned by the State

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    How come, on Monday, Calmac announce that the MV Isle of Arran will be re-deployed to the Islay service from Tuesday, yet very early Tuesday morning sail MV Hebridean Isles from Greenock with repairs completed. Meanwhile MV Arran does not move from the Clyde, and goes back on the Arran service!

    This suggests woeful ship-management.

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    It has taken going into the 3rd week of chaos on the Islay route for Calmac /Scottish Transport to get round to implementing a credible option to minimise disruption.And what is it? To run the MV Finlaggan round the clock, on a 24 hour service. Does it take an Einstein to come up this plan of action? NO. Instead Islay was offered a slow speed log- transporter which could only operate in benign sea conditions .

    If a Calmac ferry can operate 24 hrs a day in these circumstances, why can’t the Calmac network operate its major routes on a round the clock basis particularly during Summer peak periods,similar to Norway?

  • With Heb Isles in for repairs, CalMac charters replacement vessel to reduce underprovision for Islay
    And now the MV Lochinvar is out of service due to a technical issue with her propulsion system

    Is this fleet breakdown a statistical co-incidence, or due to poor planned maintenance management ?
