Bhlaraidh is located on the Glenmoriston Estate, north west of Invermoriston in the Great Glen in Scotland.  It sits on an upland plateau and was designed so as not to be seen from major tourist routes.

Planning consent was granted in early 2014 and Highland contractors RJ McLeod began pre-construction works in August 2015 with main construction works beginning in spring 2016. The first wind turbines were delivered in October 2016 with the blades travelling from Kyle of Lochalsh Harbour and the towers and other components travelling from Inverness Harbour.

Construction was completed in late 2017.

Bhlaraidh is 100% owned and operated by SSE Renewables.
