SSE's Glencassley wind farm almost halved in size

SSE Renewables has submitted plans for a smaller wind farm with shorter wind turbines than it had previously planned for a site in Sutherland.

The division of energy company SSE has lodged the proposals for 26 turbines, 126.5m (415ft) in height, at Glencassley.

Previously, 47 turbines, 135m (442.9ft) high, had been planned for the site north west of Lairg.

The proposals have been submitted to the Scottish government.
