Donside Hydro

Door open days

Aberdeen City

The Donside Community Hydro is a renewable energy micro-hydro power plant. It was established by residents of Donside Village which is built on the site of the former Donside Papermill. The hydro utilises an old lade originally used by the mill. It now produces clean renewable energy which will provide funding for community activities. Most of the site can be viewed from a public accessible path. The turbine house is not wheelchair accessible.

Access via tours only at 10am, 11am, midday, 1pm and 2pm. Booking essential:
