Cruachan The Hollow Mountain

An epic experience unlike any other in the Highlands

Venture into the underground world of Cruachan Power Station. A first for Scotland’s electricity.

Take a journey into the subterranean world of Cruachan Power Station and discover the cavernous machine hall and power-generating turbines hidden deep within Ben Cruachan mountain.

Uncover the history of the epic tunnel and the brave team that drilled and blasted it, then enjoy the stunning views of Loch Awe from the Visitor Centre – the perfect starting point to venture up the mountain to the Cruachan Dam and witness the dramatic landscape of the Highlands.

The Hollow Mountain is a pumped hydro power station unlike any other.

Don't forget to visit The Hollow Mountain Cafe, the perfect place to stop for lunch or a coffee, whether you’re visiting for a guided tour, heading up to the dam or just passing through Argyll.
