Plans for 20 turbines on site between Nairn and Grantown

Plans for a 20-turbine wind farm on a site between Nairn and Grantown-on-Spey have been submitted to the Scottish government.

Energy firm RES proposes constructing its Cairn Duhie Wind Farm on land south east of Ferness.

The company said the scheme could generate enough electricity for up to 32,000 homes and a community benefits package of £250,000-a-year.

The government is preparing for a formal consultation on the proposal.
