Culachy Wind Farm


Culachy Wind Farm

We are committed to working closely with local communities and stakeholders to bring forward proposals that are responsive to local views and opinions, help to tackle our climate emergency and make a positive contribution to the local economy.

Project Overview

Culachy Wind Farm is located on Culachy Estate, south of Fort Augustus.

We hope that this website helps to provide information on Culachy Wind Farm and how the project is progressing, as well as how you can share your views and get involved.

We recently submitted our application to develop Culachy Wind Farm to the Scottish Government.

All of the documents can be found here

If consented, the plans will bring forward a development consisting of eight turbines up to 200m high to tip – generating 57MW of clean electricity and delivering a £9m community benefit fund over the project’s operational life.
