10 February, 2014
I would like to clarify that the ‘new figures’ referred to in Martin Williams’ article ‘wind farms are blamed for wild land destruction’ (Monday 10 February), were in fact published in September 2013.
Also, the references to an increase of ‘nearly 2000 square miles’ and the 71% figure refer to the proportion of Scotland from which built development can be seen, not the proportion of the country that actually has development on it (which is a considerably smaller percentage).
