Macritch Hill

In January 2015, following an extensive period of community and stakeholder engagement, Eneco Wind UK submitted a planning application for an 18-turbine wind farm development on Scottish Water land at Backwater Reservoir in Angus.
 
Under the Water Resources (Scotland) Act 2013, Scottish Water is required to promote the use of appropriate assets for the generation of renewable energy. The land at Backwater Reservoir was identified as a site for potential development.
 
In January 2016, Eneco announced that it would be withdrawing its application for the project, known as the Macritch Hill Wind Farm.
