Berry Burn Wind Farm was approved by the Scottish Government in 2009. The 29-turbine wind farm is within the Altyre Estate, 12km south of Forres in the Moray council area. The turbines are sited on the lower slopes of Cairn Ghiubhais and Cairn Kitty, which means that compared to other similar-sized wind farms, views of the wind farm are significantly restricted. The turbines are 99.5 metres high to the tip of the blades. In addition to the turbines, the wind farm consists of a landscaped substation and access tracks. In order to minimise any environmental impacts, connection to the national grid running north of the site is via an underground cable.
Berry Burn is now owned and operated by Statkraft UK Limited.
