Cloiche Wind Farm is located on the Glendoe and Garrogie Estates, adjacent to the operational Stronelairg Wind Farm and Glendoe Hydroelectric Scheme, approximately 11 kilometres to the south-east of Fort Augustus, in the Scottish Highlands.
The 29 turbine Cloiche Wind Farm would have an installed generation capacity of up to 125MW. SSE Renewables will now focus on progressing the project through the final stages of development in preparation for a potential construction start in 2026. Final delivery of the wind farm will be subject to the project securing a route to market and a final investment decision.
