His stance on wind farms is in stark contrast to his northern neighbour, the Duke of Roxburghe, who runs an adjacent estate
across the border in Scotland, and who stands to make tens of millions of pounds from a 48 turbine Fallago Rig development in
the Lammermuir Hills.
Duke of Buccleuch family has been preserving, and renovating, The Hermitage Castle for centuries, and this century is no different.
So the Dukes on both sides of the Scottish border Buccleuch and Northumberland are promoting it’s preservation.
North British Windpower NBW (North British Wind Power NBWP), has and aristocratic line which opposes preservation of the borderlands. These have been traditional enemies in the past and try to be covert enemies today;
North British Windpower NBW (North British Wind Power NBWP) has it’s own aristocratic pedigee;
Duke of Roxburgh (Cessford -Ker), Chief of the Scottish Kerr Clan (Ferniehirst), and the Scottish Elliot Clan (Redheugh).
Christopher Wilkins is the second husband to the Clan Elliot chief, and excutive of North British Windpower NBW lives at Redheugh.
