HILL OF DRUMBAIN near ROTHES

 

 

Just to the north of Rothes on the A941 this large part of a windmill, weighing in at 54 tons and 100 feet in
length came to grief falling off a transporter and rolling down the hill to a point shown with the churned up
earth. This photo was taken some 3 days after the event when the effort to rescue the windmill part was well
in hand. The following day the road was closed to allow 2 cranes to lift the windmill part back onto another
transporter and return it back to Invergordon for onward return to the makers for repair. Windmill parts are
being transported from Invergordon to Pauls Hill near Knockando on a daily basis until probably February
2006. In the picture from left to right - Distillery House - Speyburn Distillery - River Spey Valley in the
distance -  Knockmore TV transmitter mast on the hill - Smoke and steam from the Dark Grains Plant 
at Rothes and the Ben Aigen hill directly above the smoke.
