near to Bridge of Ericht, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Eilean nam Faoileag
Eilean nam Faoileag
The name in gaelic means 'the island of the gulls'; it is in fact a man made island or crannog built on a sand bar. Elevation of the water level (due to the hydro scheme) has considerably reduced the island's area. The Robertsons of Struan used the island as a prison, but the tower is a Victorian folly. The power lines in the background are from Rannoch power station.
