A walk that may or may not be to everyone’s taste.
A blot on the landscape or engineering marvel? You decide.
Looking for something different, a walk round the perimeter of the Cruach Mhor wind farm.
Parking by the main road (A886) a forestry road winds its way up the hill giving access to the wind farm. The construction of the access road in generous due to the logistics of getting the apparatus to site. Easy to navigate without straying off onto the spur roads.
A maze of tracks leading to the turbines awaits, a good circular route can be chosen to circumnavigate the turbines.
On the time of visit the mist wasn’t far away, sometimes engulfing the structures. They could be heard but not seen until within 100mtr proximity.
The tracks within the site are fairly undulating, so after the initial climb progress is easy.
An interesting walk, something different that divides opinion.
