From the hills to the coast, this is a lovely region, and this is The Stewartry of Dumfries & Galloway. This panorama is a view looking south with Kirkcudbright Bay to the east and in the west is Fleet Bay. The hill to the right is Cairntosh with its scheduled ancient monuments and the low hill on the left is Knockendurrick. These hills lie on the boundary of the Galloway Forest Park and there’s talk of the region becoming a national park. The area relies very much on tourism, yet there are plans to build a wind farm immediately in front of Fuffock hill on which we stand. The turbines would stand 115 metres and show above the hill tops as well as being visible right across a landscape already scheduled as a National Scenic Area. Saving the planet shouldn’t mean damaging it at the same time.
