I came upon this unusual obstruction while doing one of my 'fisul path inspections. It's our local contribution to the Beauly - Denny Interconnector.This is the upgraded transmission system designed to take the wind generated electricity from the Wild Land ( and some merely Slightly Annoyed Land) to where people use it, and ultimately onward to the barren wastes of Englandshire.
If you have travelled the A9 recently, you will have seen ample evidence of the relative size of the new pylons and the construction infrastructure.Locally, all strands of political opinion were united in requesting that the line be undergrounded ( a word, apparently) where it crosses the flat land of the carse, but apparently this would have been an unbearable burden on the dividends payable to the goatherds and flamenco dancers who own "Scottish" Power. To be fair, they did offer to paint the pylons in a more environmentally sensitive colour.
This used to be a pleasant, if boggy, little wood, with orchids and stuff. It will probably recover.
Now, I'm not against pylons per se ( little bit of French, there) . I would be lying if I said that a line of pylons looming out of the fog has never helped to correct a minor temporary locational anomaly, but this thing is just taking the piss.
