Visit Cruachan Power Station

Cruachan Power Station is located on the shores of Loch Awe in the Scottish Highlands, between Glasgow and Oban. The huge turbine hall is located 1 km within the hollowed-out mountain of Ben Cruachan.

The visitor centre includes an interactive exhibition for children, café and gift shop, as well as free parking. Guided tours of the pumped storage power station are available through the Cruachan website with visitors and school groups welcomed between February and December. There are a variety of hiking options from the visitor centre to the dam and Ben Cruachan’s summit.

Tours of Cruachan Power Station are suspended and we are not taking bookings for future dates.

Our Visitor Centre will be closed from Monday 16 March.

This is to reduce the risk of people spreading the Coronavirus and the closure will be reviewed on a weekly basis.

We know this will inconvenience people who have booked tours but as a working power station, the safety and wellbeing of our employees, contractors and visitors is our first priority.
