Creggan wind farm site location

The site of the proposed Creggan wind farm is located near to the village of Glenbarr in West Kintyre, Argyll and Bute. It is 18 kilometres north of Campbeltown and 10 kilometres west of Carradale. The map below shows the site (shaded blue area) in relation to nearby settlements. You can click on the image to enlarge it.

Creggan wind farm – indicative lay-out

The plan below shows the layout of turbines proposed for the Creggan wind farm site, as submitted to the Scottish Government. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Creggan Wind Farm site lay-out

Photomontage – Gigha, South Pier

The view below shows how the Creggan wind farm would appear from the South Pier on the island of Gigha, north-west of the site, based on the original 26-turbine lay-out. A so-called ‘wireframe’, showing the contours of the land, is superimposed over the photograph to give a clear idea of how the turbines would sit in the landscape. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Photomontage – Layby at Glenacardoch Point

The view below shows how the Creggan wind farm would appear from the layby at Glenacardoch Point, west of the site, based on the original 26-turbine lay-out. A so-called ‘wireframe’, showing the contours of the land, is superimposed over the photograph to give a clear idea of how the turbines would sit in the landscape. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Photomontage – Glenbarr Village Junction

The view below shows how the Creggan wind farm would appear from the Glenbarr village junction, where the minor road into Glenbarr meets the A83, south-west of the site, based on the original 26-turbine lay-out. A so-called ‘wireframe’, showing the contours of the land, is superimposed over the photograph to give a clear idea of how the turbines would sit in the landscape. Click on the image to enlarge it.

Photomontage – Bellochantuy Bay car park

The view below shows how the Creggan wind farm would appear from the car park at Bellochantuy Bay, south of the site, along the A83, based on the original 26-turbine lay-out. A so-called ‘wireframe’, showing the contours of the land, is superimposed over the photograph to give a clear idea of how the turbines would sit in the landscape. Click on the image to enlarge it.
