A Section 42 Planning Application including Environmental Impact Assessment was submitted to Argyll and Bute Council requesting an extension to the operational period. The planning consent for this was granted and the operational wind farm can now continue to generate up to the end of 2026.

SSE Renewables Shows Continued Support for The Kintyre Ultra

The Kintyre Ultra was given a much needed funding and volunteer boost this year, thanks to SSE Renewables.

The race, hosted in May each year, is renowned for its challenging terrain and breathtaking scenery, received a donation of £1,600 from the companies Tangy RePowering Development team, and some very appreciated ‘on the ground’ support from the onshore operations team.

This year, the 50.5km race was from Tayinloan to Tarbert with 960m of climb on a mix of beach, rough hill tracks and forest roads.

SSE Renewables volunteers above (Darren Munro, Tim Elliott, David Carr, Steven Smillie and Craig Scally) gave up their weekend to help out.

The team were up bright and early to travel to Tayinloan in West Kintyre where the race start point and the registration check in were located.

Their duties included collecting all the runners’ various drop bags and finish line bags to allow them to refuel etc. at the various check points.

A couple of the volunteers also positioned themselves at Seal Point layby to give the runners a much need water stop in the hot weather.

The organisers sent over a lovely message of thanks which is below:-

“Thank so much again for providing an excellent service on Saturday, delivering drop bags, bringing back signage and manning the extra drinks station. It makes a big difference to us, not having to go out for another day to collect the extra signs and with the weather being so hot, even early on it was good to be able to offer water for topping up.”

“Please pass on thanks to everyone involved.”

Anyone interested being involved again, either through entering or supporting then please save the 10th May 2025 in your diary!
