Wind farm impacts on landscape
Developers should assess the potential impacts of a wind farm proposal on Scotland’s landscapes.
View our guidance to find out how wind farms should be:
- sited in those landscapes best able to accommodate them
- designed to best relate to their setting and to minimise landscape and visual impacts
- Siting and Designing Wind Farms in the Landscape
- Assessing the cumulative impact of onshore wind energy developments
See our visual representation guidance for onshore and offshore wind farm applications.
