Maternity services in Caithness
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.
