As many of you know, Ardgrain, which dates from the 1600's, is listed by Historic Scotland as Grade A (nationally important), and is believed to be one of only three surviving examples of Scottish houses in the Queen Anne style.
Unfortunately a planning application has been lodged to erect a very large and imposing wind turbine directly in front of Ardgrain, permanently impacting both the site and setting of this nationally important house.
If, like me, you believe that preservation of historic buildings and our cultural heritage is important for future generations, could you send Aberdeenshire Council a quick note outlining your objections. To object on-line only takes a minute.
Valid objections may include:
Anyone can object and it only takes a minute by visiting:
