NN5032 : Survey pillar, Beinn Bhreac

3 km from Auchlyne, Stirling, Great Britain

Survey pillar, Beinn Bhreac
Survey pillar, Beinn Bhreac
A pile of concrete blocks near the summit of Beinn Bhreac (796m). This would have been a triangulation station, not for the Ordnance Survey, but the North of Scotland Hydro-electricity board. The hills of Glen Lochay are all tapped for water power, burns are captured and led into powerstations directly or reservoirs. Miles of tunnels were dug taking water across watersheds. This would have been a survey station for planning and executing one of these engineering works around 1950.
