Highland councillors reject Culachy Wind Farm
Highland councillors have voted not to give the 13-turbine Culachy wind farm near the Corrieyairick Pass consent.
Developer RES said it was disappointed by the decision adding that the construction of the farm would have raised £3.6m for the local economy.
The pass is popular with hillwalkers and was used as a route into the Highlands by government armies during the Jacobite Risings.
Opponents to the project included the Mountaineering Council of Scotland.
Highland Council's south planning applications committee voted 5-2 to reject the planning application.
A decision on Tom Nan Clach Wind Farm near Tomatin, which also involves 13 turbines, was deferred until January.
