A RE­NEW­ABLE engergy com­pany has been re­fused per­mis­sion for a 15-tur­bine wind farm at Ard­chon­nel, fol­low­ing an ap­peal.

Scot­tish gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials up­held last week an ear­lier rul­ing from Ar­gyll and Bute coun­cil based mainly on land­scape and vis­ual im­pacts of the farm, planned by RWE Innogy UK.

The 45MW pro­ject was based on tip heights of 111 me­tres and hard­ware of up to 3MW.

The wind farm was planned for a site close to RWE’s An Suidhe site, above Loch Awe.
