Wind farms and Lowland Leaders

At the weekend I was running a MTS Lowland Leader Assessment course for 9 successful candidates in the Central Belt. Day 1 was spent at Whitelees Windfarm. This bleak area of moorland and forestry seems a good location for these impressive structures. I wouldn't want to see Scotland become a field of turbines but the size and sound of these enormous things is kind of impressive and given that each one is numbered and marked on a local map it does make the navigation a little… different! The site was certainly getting plenty of wind on saturday.
Yesterday we were north of Aberfoyle and thankfully the weather was better than forecast. Spotted my first primroses of spring too. Well done to the 9 new Lowlad Leaders. Winter isn't over for me yet though- plenty of fresh snow on the hills and more work up there later in the week.
