Stephenson Halliday was commissioned by Dulas to produce a LVIA report and supporting graphics as part of the EIA application for Gleann Casaig Hydro Scheme (500kW run-of-river hydro-electric scheme) near Brig O Turk and Glen Finglas in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park.

The landscape was open in character and an assessment of wild land qualities was completed as part of the LVIA work. In addition the report included an assessment of visual effects associated with recreational receptors using local footpaths.

A detailed schedule of mitigation was included that described the measures to be undertaken at the construction and restoration stage.
