The air clarity was pretty-good today. I could make out Aberchirder and Turriff quite clearly. I could even see my house from the summit.

Every time I ascend this hill I see numerous additional wind turbines .

I think they have lost the plot in Aberdeenshire with regard to the sheer number of these unsightly things blotting the landscape. "Aberdeenshire, turbines from mountain to sea."
