Are you concerned that some of Scotland's most beautiful areas are at risk from major infrastructure projects?

Do you agree that reviewing the status of National Scenic Areas, and considering additions to the list, is a reasonable approach to protect our natural environment?

Do you have any other suggestions for how we protect Scotland's unique and natural landscapes?

Do you know other areas that could be considered for designation as NSAs?


We have destroy many places by greed of human activities which should at all cost to prevent and reserve if possible.

The preservation of natural areas is both the duty of the common man and the government, Scottish heritage is for everyone, both ourselves and for nature itself.

Loch Awe is an unspoiled, beautiful area where golden eagles may be seen flying. It needs protection from unsightlly and bird-killing wind turbines. In California, over 3,000 golden eagles were killed by wind turbines over 25 years.

It is unbelievable that a beautiful and historic nature reserve can be sacrificed to monetary gain. Shameless and disrespectful!

It seems hard to believe that someone would look to ruin the unique landscape of Loch Awe by erecting huge wind turbines. People travel from far and wide to enjoy the Loch and it's amazing views, and the introduction of new wind farms would severely threaten this.

We need to keep beautiful areas, just that! We'll get more from tourism, keeping our area beautiful. Industrialising the area will lose us business and very likely cause ill health to residents, a fail fail !
