Peterhead Power Station [NAT]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1983.

This is a large site on which has been built two power stations. The earliest one is an oil/gas fired station. The second, a gas-turbine generating station, was built following privatisation of the Scottish Hydro Board, and the de-regulation of electricity generation in the 1990s. This survey was carried out in order to enhance the National Monuments Record of Scotland holdings.
