Foyers Aluminium Smelter
Foyers Aluminium Smelter
Aluminium was smelted here at Foyers from 1895 until 1967. This was one of several smelters built in the Highlands at various times, the idea being that they would run on cheap and plentiful hydro-electric power, but none has survived. After the closure of the aluminium smelting, the plant was adapted to generate more hydro=electric power for the National Grid from water piped down from Loch Mhor when demand was high, and pumped back up again when demand was low.
