Holm and Hollymill
Holm and Hollymill is our latest proposed onshore wind farm development near Turiff in Aberdeenshire.
Holm and Hollymill Farms are situated close to the village of King Edward in Northern Aberdeenshire. Craigston Castle, located on the 400 hectare estate of which Holm Farm is a part, was built in 1604 by Sir John Urquhart and is still home to his descendants. A working farm, Holm grows a mix of arable crops with the remaining land grazed by sheep and its award-winning Highland cattle.
To help ensure both Holm and Hollymill remain working farms and provide a livelihood for future generations it is paramount that the landowners find the right opportunities to diversify. As well as being a sound investment, the wind farm development will also offer benefits to the local community, such as a local electricity tariff and a community fund to provide financial support to local projects.
