Sloy Power Station
On the shore of Loch Lomond, Sloy Hydroelectric Power Station with its 4 machines was completed in 1950 and remains the most powerful non-pumped storage power station in Britain. Water falls down the hillside in 4 huge cast iron pipes from a valve house at the end of a tunnel from Loch Sloy high up in the hills between Ben Vorlich & Ben Vane.
