Whitelee Windfarm is the UK's largest onshore windfarm. It is located on Eaglesham Moor just 20 minutes from central Glasgow. The windfarm has 215 turbines which can generate 539MW of electricity, enough to power over 300,000 homes*.
You can access the windfarm for free and experience the wind turbines up close with over 130kms of trails to explore. The Visitor Centre is also free and has an interactive exhibition and a Cafe to relax after the long walk on the windfarm.
The windfarm became fully operational in 2009 the windfarm producing clean, green energy. Ten years in the making, Whitelee has been carefully planned and designed to work in harmony with the existing environment and is home to a 25 square kilometre area of habitat management, one of the largest in the UK. Species such as merlin and black grouse can be spotted at Whitelee.
Whitelee’s trails are great for cycling, walking and even horse riding. However, we do ask that you follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code at all times.
