Abstract

This chapter presents the results of a study that explored the potential of wind farms as tourist attractions in the peripheral area of northeast Scotland, UK. Twelve in-depth interviews were conducted between 31 October and 12 November 2002, as well as three focus groups (consisting of 8 respondents in each group). Results are discussed under the following headings: impressions of wind farms; facilities at the site; advertising, promotion and community involvement; potential funding and partners; and likely number and range of visitors.
