The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - FEATURES -

be right in our face. Vat­ten­fall seem to be send­ing out con­fus­ing in­for­ma­tion.

One thing they have failed to men­tion is that these tur­bines will be armed with fog horns. As for the tur­bines be­ing “vir­tu­ally silent” I doubt that.

At Black­dog, the he­li­copter flight­path is out­bound to the north at around 1,000 feet. The in­bound flight is south over the vil­lage at around 500 feet. With the tur­bines at 625 feet, is this an ac­ci­dent wait­ing to hap­pen?

In­ver­ness SIR, – I note the con­tent of your ar­ti­cle on changes to ma­ter­nity ser­vices in Caith­ness (Press and Jour­nal, Fe­bru­ary 17).

I think it im­por­tant to ac­knowl­edge that I have not made any pub­lic state­ments or spo­ken to your jour­nal­ist team on this is­sue.

The in­for­ma­tion you present is based on doc­u­ments I re­leased to CHAT (Caith­ness Health Ac­tion Team) in ad­vance of their meet­ing with the cabi­net sec­re­tary for health. These doc­u­ments took the form of cor­re­spon­dence with var­i­ous par­ties in NHS High­land and the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment team. I would re­fer any­one look­ing for fur­ther in­sight to ex­am­ine these doc­u­ments.
