Welcome to Save Loch Urr

The Save Loch Urr group has been established to stop Loch Urr, and its surrounding countryside, being destroyed by E.ON's proposal to build 26 wind turbines 418 feet high,  that will, if built, spoil hundreds of acres of countryside around the Loch. We have to stop E.ON and other wind farm developers or the wild beauty of the hills and valleys around Moniaive are likely to vanish under a sea of wind turbines. There are approaching 1,000 giant wind turbines (including the 23 now consented at Blackcraig) operational, consented, in scoping, or in planning within a 25 mile radius of Loch Urr. Click here for full details of what is being proposed by E.ON at Loch Urr. For a map of proposed wind turbines in the area click here.

Save Loch Urr is also campaigning to protect Mochrum Fell, Collieston Hill, Marnhoul Fell and Barlay Hill, which are all also under threat from wind farm developments.

We strongly believe that the cumulative effect of these wind farms will have a severe impact on the environment, landscape, tourism and amenity value of the region, the health and wellbeing of local communities, as well as harming the wildlife and historic heritage of Loch Urr and its surroundings.
