Heriot wind farm plans revealed

Plans have been revealed for a 16-turbine wind farm between the A7 and A68 near Heriot in the Scottish Borders.

Ridgewind Limited wants to erect the turbines on land near Gilston Farm.

The site straddles the Scottish Borders and Midlothian council areas.

A full application for seven turbines has been submitted to Scottish Borders Council, and a similar application for nine turbines has been lodged with the Midlothian authority.

The applications will be considered over the coming months.
