The Scottish government has thrown out plans for a 13-turbine wind farm in Glenurquhart near Loch Ness.

Highland councillors refused permission for the Cnoc an Eas scheme last May

Developers Force 9 Energy and EDF Energy Renewables appealed against that decision.

But a planning reporter appointed by the government to consider the project said the scheme would have a “significant <adverse> visual impact”.
