Glen Affric Project

Project Background

The two Glen Affric projects, comprising a 2MW scheme on the Abhainn Gleann nam Fiadh and 1.5MW on the Allt Garbh, received full consent from The Highland Council in 2013.

The run-of-river hydro schemes are being developed by Green Highland Renewables on land managed or owned by Forest Enterprise Scotland, SSE and part of Wester Guisachan Estate.

The projects are scheduled to finish in summer 2017 and together the schemes will produce enough power to supply approximately 2,750 homes.

The developments are among a number being progressed by energy companies as part of an on-going renewables programme being promoted across land managed by Forest Enterprise Scotland.
