About Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre

Whitelee Windfarm is Europe's largest windfarm and is located on Eaglesham Moor just 20 minutes from Glasgow. The windfarm currently has 140 operational turbines, covering an area of 55 square kilometres, which generate enough electricity to power 180,000 homes.

Entry to both the windfarm and visitor centre is free and with an interactive exhibition and over 70km of trails, there is a lot to explore!

The Visitor Centre

The Exhibition has fantastic hands-on interactive activities. If you were building a windfarm would you know where to place the turbines? Would you know how many blades to give them? Would you be able to balance the country’s energy supply to meet electricity demands? Investigate this and much more!

The Learning Hub is where we host activities and workshops for members of the public and school groups.

The Café serves a selection of hot and cold food from local suppliers, teas and coffees and children’s meals. The café is surrounded with large glass windows and an external deck that provides stunning views of the windfarm. Cafe is open from 10am to 4.30pm daily.

We also have a small range of souvenirs so you can take home a reminder of your visit.

We also have free parking, free charging for electric vehicles, free WiFi, a bike shed and baby changing facilities
