ScottishPower Renewables (SPR) invites you to participate in its Public Consultation on the draft proposals for the Hollandmey Renewable Energy Development (Hollandmey RED).

SPR is proposing to develop Hollandmey RED, situated approximately 8 km south-west of John o'Groats and 16 km east of Thurso within the north-eastern part of the Caithness area of the Highlands.

The proposed Development is anticipated to consist of approximately 10 wind turbines with tip heights of up to 149.9 m. The deployment of other renewable technologies within the Site is also being proposed, including battery storage and solar photovoltaic (solar PV) generation.

Early consultation is key to developing our projects and, throughout the development process, we ensure local communities and stakeholders are given the opportunity to provide feedback and are kept informed of project progress.

Given the restrictions requiring social distancing, instead of holding Public Information Days, a Public Information Event on the proposals will be available online from 2 October 2020 on the project

The online Public Information Event will include information banners as well as visualisations to help to give an impression of what the proposed Development could look like from different viewpoints in the area.

The event will include a link to a feedback form through which comments and questions, as well as any requests for further information, can be submitted directly to the Project Team.

Alternatively, you may contact the Project Team by emailing

or writing to

If you have any questions or wish to make comments on the proposal, we request that these are submitted via the feedback form by 23 October 2020.

Please note that this notice does not relate to an application and that any comments made on the proposals to SPR at this stage are not representations to the Scottish Ministers. If an application is subsequently submitted, normal publicity will be undertaken at that time and you will have the opportunity to make a formal representation then.
