Guided Tour

The Guided Tour takes you on a short journey deep inside the mountain Ben Cruachan. The power station lies at the heart of the mountain one kilometer inside.

Once inside the mountain you are taken up the visitor's walkway, past sub-tropical plants that grow well with the warm humid conditions inside the mountain, and then on to the visitor's viewing gallery. Once there, you can see the generating hall that houses the four generators that we use to produce electricity from water, available to you in your own home at the flick of a switch.

** The Visitor Centre is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open 31st March 2015. Please call 0141 614 9106 for further details **
