We are proposing to develop Culachy Wind Farm, which is located on the Culachy Estate, approximately 7.5km south of Fort Augustus.
We are working to gather feedback that will, alongside the results of the technical assessments, inform the design of Culachy Wind Farm. The responses that we receive will help us to develop a more detailed design which we will then discuss with the community and key stakeholders, prior to applying for consent.
We are proposing that the turbine blades will be delivered to Kyle of Lochalsh, travelling along the A87, A82 and the Ardachy Road to a new site entrance. Tower components will be delivered to Corpach and will travel along the A82 to meet the Ardachy Road to the new site entrance.
We submitted a Scoping Report to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit (ECU) in February 2022. This described our draft proposal and invited the views of consultees on the scope of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA).
We have undertaken many surveys on site. These will inform the final layout of the site ensuring that it minimises effects on the local environment. We then evaluate and present the effects of the project in the Environmental Impact Assessment Report (EIA-R). The EIA-R will accompany our application which is expected to be submitted in late 2023.
