NO0147 : Reinstated dry stone wall

taken 5 years ago, near to Dowally, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Reinstated dry stone wall
Reinstated dry stone wall, taken 5 years ago
The white concrete post on the other side of the wall indicates the path of the buried penstock pipe of the Dowally Hydro-Electric Scheme.
The dry stone wallers for the reinstated wall are much inferior to the original builders.
Dowally Hydro-Electric Scheme
This is a 'run-of-river' scheme where water is extracted from the Dowally Burn at an old abandoned dam, the intake; carried down the hillside alongside the watercourse in a pipeline or penstock; to the powerhouse housing the turbine, generator, transformer and switching units with a connection to the national grid; and finally the water returns to the burn in the tailrace.
This scheme passes from NO0148 through NO0147 to NO0047 .
