better than expected
Aug. 2021
Really not sure what to expect- just going a trip out with friends. We had a quick walk-would love to do more as there were plenty of paths to take and the place was full of people walking dogs and folk on bikes.
The cafe was very good-soup lovely and excellent friendly service. Lovely views. Unfortunately the exhibition was closed..so we may return in the future.

Glacial service
Aug. 2021 • Paare
The food is good and the pricing is fair, but the service is glacial. With four people in front of me, and none of their orders were complicated, it took 20 minutes to get served. There were two staff on the counter. The girl is very pleasant but hopelessly inefficient. The bloke just seemed to pick up trays and bump into things and really seemed to have no purpose. They really do need to get someone in to show them how to run a cafe that doesn’t involve their customers dying of old age in the queue!

A walk in the future
Nov. 2019
Only ten miles and twenty minutes in the car gets you to the Whitelee Windfarm Visitor Centre. It is therefore no surprise that on a clear day the UK's largest on land windfarm can be seen from the centre of Glasgow (by the Mitchel Library). The visitors centre has free parking, toilets, a cafe and a small exhibition area. It is advisable to pick up a map from here. Although the area is well signposted the map includes each individual turbine which are clearly numbered both on the map as well as the turbine itself making it almost impossible to get lost. There are two signposted walks. One is labelled the "daily mile", which I guess changes from time to time and the walk I took is marked as the 'Lochgoin circuit". This is a eight mile walk which took me about two and a half hours to complete. The windfarm is on Eaglesham moor which is situated at 300 metres elevation. It is a bleak place with no shelter and usually noticeably colder than the nearby city. The walk takes you past quite a few of the turbines which are enormous when you get up close to them. It is impossible to resist standing still by them and bending your neck backwards to watch the blades spinning up high. The noise they make is eerily fascinating and the shadows of the blades that go shooting past your feet on the ground are quite hypnotic. After about a mile I found that I was walking alone with no other people in site. I passed the Loch and a spruce plantation but mostly my view was of sparse moorland with over a hundred whizzing turbines in my view at any given time (there are 215 turbines here in total). I was lucky to get back to the visitor centre before it closed at 5pm to get a coffee as my reward for a long walk and then I used the virtual reality headset to experience being out on the windfarm all over again.

Didn't think there was anything here for visitingm

but a nice wee cafe and visitor centre with an exhibition. Explains how it all works.

Place is huge so ideal for dog walkers, cyclists and those who just fancy a stroll.

Lovely views also. Staff friendly.

Car park is locked after it shuts but other parking spots are outwith the gates.

Brisk walk

Great for everyone here whether you just want to go check the turbines out or go on a 8 mile hike. They have a very informative visitors centre echo sill equip you with a walking map and give you information on the history of the turbines. There's a lovely cafe serving soup and sandwiches. I did the 8 mile loch walk and it was stunning, walking by many a turbine and the loch then through which felt like a Christmas tree farm. Lovely day out.

Visited this week during a week's holiday to Ayrshire . It was the best day of the week. It was a last minute visit and we arrived 10 mins late for the bus tour. The staff were very friendly and Stewart the driver was more than happy to take us anyway. We learnt so much about windturbines and standing directly under one of them was amazing. Stewart was an excellent tour guide who answered all our questions. Afterwards we visited the exhibition area and relaxed in the cafe . We would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area. Thank you everyone.

Mega Wind Farm

We stopped here on a one day tour. We’ve seen wind farms previously, but not in such large numbers in a concentrated area. You don’t need a long stop to visit.
It’s interesting, & the information centre & cafe are good to escape to warm up.

Good Walking and Cycle Routes
Mai 2019 • Familie
Great place to go walking, running, cycling, hacking, dog walking regardless of fitness level. Reasonably well signed, although best to take a photo of the overall map before starting to make sure you're going on the right paths. Visitors centre is great for a bite to eat or warm-up tea after going round the windfarm.
