The article discusses a court case wherein the Scottish government agreed to reject the 14 wind turbines scheme due to findings that it can affect the tourist industry, the landscape and the wild animals living in the area. The appellant preferred to see the visual effects of the turbines rather than the possible danger that it could cause. The risk that the turbines can bring outweighed the benefits of renewable energy that it could provide.
