NN6269 : Garry tunnel entrance

taken 11 years ago, near to Allt Coire Easan [water Feature], Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Garry tunnel entrance
Garry tunnel entrance
This building sits above the entrance to the Garry tunnel. It carries water for hydro-electricity from Loch Garry to Loch Ericht at NN5572.

A plaque on the front states that the tunnel is 25,100 feet long, was started on 22nd March 1935 and completed on 26th June 1937.

The 1:50000 OS map shows the building in NN6270, but my GPS indicated that it straddles the line between grid squares.
