near to Dowally, Perth And Kinross, Great Britain

Old dam on Dowally Burn
Old dam on Dowally Burn
The new very white concrete structure built onto the dam is the intake to the Dowally Hydro-Electric Scheme.
The old dam originally supplied water to Dunkeld but that system was abandoned.
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 .
