Garlogie Beam Engine & Turbine House 2024

The engine mostly dates from the late 1830s although the engine beam is from a Boulton & Watt engine that was supplied to Alexander Hadden & Sons for their factory at The Green in Aberdeen in 1805. This makes it the oldest cast iron engine beam still in existence. The engine is the oldest steam engine of any kind still in its original location in Scotland. Also on display is a hydro-electric plant comprising a water turbine, electrical generator, switchgear, control and distribution equipment. These were installed by Lord Cowdray in 1923 to supply his estate workshops and house with electricity.
