The Beatrice complex seen from the Caithness/Sutherland Border. The next few weeks should see some serious decisions on what this seascape will look like like after 2020. Scottish and Southern Energy are currently weighing up the options as to whether to go ahead with the first phase of the 200 turbine Beatrice wind farm, which will mainly be just over the horizon of this picture. At the same time the 30 year old Beatrice oil field looks like it will close down by Christmas, and be decommissioned during the next decade.
All change as they say.
