taken 12 years ago, near to Dunalastair, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Dunalastair Intake Dam
Dunalastair Intake Dam
Built by the Grampian Electric Supply Company and adopted as part of NoSHEB's Tummel-Garry Hydroelectric Scheme, the dam serves as a very large intake weir. Water is conducted along an open aqueduct to a headpond 2 miles away above Tummel Power Station. The dam has two floodgates and four syphon spillways as well as an over-crest spillway, due to the volume of water which sometimes needs to be discharged.
