Visitors' centre opening times at Whitelee Windfarm

Opening times for the visitors' centre facilities (including toilets) at Whitelee Windfarm.

Visitors are encouraged to walk, run, cycle and explore Whitelee and its extensive network of tracks and trails at their leisure. Why not reach the highest point in East Renfrewshire and the windfarm - Corse Hill, or follow in the footsteps of the early lace traders and take to the Weavers Trail Right of Way from Darvel to Eaglesham. If you have questions about access at Whitelee or would like some helpful suggestions of where to go to see wildlife or routes that are off the main trails, then please contact the Whitelee countryside rangers who are happy to hear from you.

In addition to the access opportunities there is an on-site visitor centre providing useful help and advice as well as site maps, advice guides, welfare facilities and a cafe.


The main entrance to Whitelee (off Moor Road), hosts a visitor centre with the following facilities:

  • Toilets (including outdoor toilets with showers for muddy mountain bikers)
  • A bike shed
  • A Cafe serving hot drinks and food
  • A great interactive exhibition hall with displays on wind power
  • A car park with 130 spaces and space for coaches (please note all the car parks are open through the winter when the visitor centre is closed)
