We recently undertook a Landscape and Visual Impact Appraisal for a 44 unit mixed house type development in the settlement of Auchtertyre which lies to the north of the A87, near the junction with the A890, approximately 8km east of Kyle of Lochalsh. Key issues were the potential impacts on the Kintial National Scenic Area, the Kyle - Plockton SLA and the Lochalsh Woodland Walks Garden and Designed Landscape. None of these designations were found to be ffected by the proposed development. The report also included landscape proposals to mitigate the impacts on views from the road. The planning application was submitted in March 2019.
