Changes are being proposed for a controversial windfarm at a Highland beauty spot.
The Tom Nan Clach windfarm was granted permission by Scottish ministers in 2013, following a public inquiry.
Ministers took nearly two years to back the proposals for 17 turbines on Dava Moor, to the west of the former island lair of the notorious Wolf of Badenoch on Lochindorb.
But now Cawdor Estate and Infinergy propose to install fewer turbines, though the machines will be taller.
The original plans, on Cawdor Estate, proposed 17 turbines at 360ft, while the new ones comprise 13 turbines at 410ft.
The new devices will be also more powerful and give a greater energy yield, although the potential output of the windfarm will remain roughly the same, at 39MW.
Construction has not started on the windfarm and it is not due to connect to the national grid until 2018.
Councillors at next week’s south planning applications committee will be told that the developers have submitted a Proposal of Application Notice, pending a full planning application.
According to a report to be considered by the committee, landscape issues, noise and roads are among the issues to be considered during the planning process.
Local community councils will also be consulted on the plans.
A series of open days will be held in the area next month to give residents more information about the proposals.
The sessions will be held at Strathdearn Hall, Tomatin, on June 9, The Mound, Cawdor, on June 10 and Carrbridge Village Hall on June 11. All three will run from 2pm-7pm.
