Construction on a £2.6billion windfarm in the Moray Firth will start next year.

The 84-turbine Beatrice offshore project, off the coast of Caithness, will create up to 900 jobs and deliver a multimillion pound boost to the region.

Work will get under way next year, although £10million of improvements at the development’s main base at Wick Harbour will begin within months.
