When I heard that 2 new Wind Turbines were being erected in August 2015 somewhere at Auchentibber, I rushed up that week to walk my dog and investigate. There, behind Calderside Farm, near Campknowe were the 2 new turbines, (smaller than I expected, but still large enough to be seen from over at East Kilbride). The location though is hidden from Blantyre, so I’m not going to complain. (I’m all for renewable sources of energy if they don’t conflict with the habitats of nearby residents. I’m NOT for them, if the people who live beside them don’t want them there!)
My visit was made on a nice sunny day. I have to admit, we’re so lucky to be able to go half a mile outside Blantyre and be able to enjoy these beautiful walks on narrow roads with spectacular views of Blantyre and Glasgow. It removes my stress. Walking these narrow lanes and tracks, with hedgerows on either side, I feel like I’m many miles away but comforted by the knowledge that this beauty spot is right on our doorstep. I was please to see on this visit too, the council had cleared all traces of the recent fly tipping.
