Plans have been unveiled for a new wind farm in the Scottish Borders.

Greenock-based Gilston Hill Wind Farm Ltd want to erect eight turbines, each up to 413ft (126m) tall, on land north west of Gilston Farm, near Heriot.

The company said it was seeking guidance from Scottish Borders Council on an Environmental Impact Assessment.

They said that once that had been processed a planning application would be submitted.
