Plans to build a third wind farm near the village of Grantshouse in the Scottish Borders have been unveiled.

Livos Energy wants to locate eight turbines on land at Howpark Farm - about two miles away.

The site is adjacent to the already operating Drone Hill wind farm and sits to the south of Penmanshiel, which has consent for a new wind farm.

Livos Energy has submitted a scoping request to Scottish Borders Council for the site between the A1 and A1107.
