THE 6 DAMS
Our dams are undoubtedly the biggest draw to Elan Valley and they offer a wonderful year round backdrop for cyclists, walkers, and photographers. With the exception of Dol-y-Mynach all the dams are also accessible by car.
This is the waterfall which formed as a reservoir
Caban Coch is part of a series of Elan Valley Reservoirs that include the Claerwen, Craig-goch, Pen-y-garreg and Garreg-ddu.
Powered by Nature
At Mackies Dairy of Scotland we have our own renewable energy supply. Mackie's first turbine was installed in 2005, with two more added in 2007 and a final larger one installed in 2015.
Whatton Road Solar farm near village approved
According to the plans, the solar farm will produce a renewable energy output of 1.53 MW which would be able to generate enough clean electricity to power approximately 340 homes.
Mackies dairy solar project is Scotland’s largest
Based at Westertown Farm, the centre of the 647ha Mackie family food and farming business, the 4ha site hosts 7,000 solar panels with a capacity of 1.8MW.
