Nairn family hit the campaign trail
A NAIRN family yesterday walked 18 miles between their home and a Highland beauty spot to protest against proposals to erect more than 100 wind turbines on wild land.
Nairn Academy pupils Marc Woods, 15, and his brother, Peter, 12, were joined on their journey by their mother, Katrina, in a walk which took them from their front door in George Street, Nairn, to Lochindorb, near Grantown.
Much of their route followed the A939 Nairn-Grantown road, before the trio followed an unclassified road to Lochindorb.
The boys’ seven-year-old brother, Scott, a Millbank Primary pupil, joined his siblings for the last leg. The walk was arranged to generate funds for Save our Dava protest group, which is campaigning against plans to build dozens of turbines in an area encircling Lochindorb.
