Derelict mill on Dowally Burn
Derelict mill on Dowally Burn
The tumbling Dowally Burn has for centuries been used to provide energy. The water in the new hydro-electric scheme will by-pass this waterfall.
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 .
