Glascarnoch dam from the south
Glascarnoch dam from the south
The concrete gravity and earth-filled dam was completed in 1957.
Glascarnoch hydro scheme :: NH3172
Work started at the Glascarnoch site in 1953 and the dam was completed in 1957. There is no power station here but the loch collects water from Loch Droma to the W and via a tunnel from Loch Vaich to the N; the stored water is then transferred by tunnel southwards to the power station at Mossford near Grudie Bridge. More details are given in ‘The Dam Builders’ by James Miller (Birlinn, Edinburgh 2010).
