Whitelee Windfarm

Just south of Glasgow is Europe’s largest windfarm, on Eaglesham Moor. You can find out more about the place here. They welcome visitors and have lots of trails around the turbines – we were here yesterday and saw lots of families with young kids walking or on bikes, and plenty of dogs having a change of scenery too. Highly recommended.

    I love wind farms.

  2. The view of the farm as you come up the M77 from Ayr is incredible. It stretches for miles or so it seems.

    We went to a place where there is a HUGE windfarm of over 150 turbines. I really love these turbines, as I have said before….to me, they are a sign of independence. Harnessing windpower seems like a good idea.

    I really like the angle you put on this photo! Very lovely, and the turbines don’t seem QUITE the giants they are!!!!

    I wonder how many windfarms there now are in Scotland. I remember the first turbines I saw, in Scotland. There was something quite epic in their scale.
