Power lines by Beinn Bhreac, above Dundreggan
Power lines by Beinn Bhreac, above Dundreggan
This is part of the Beauly-Denny Power Line, here it runs over the hills between Tomich and Glenmoriston. The existing 132kV line is on the left, with the replacement 400kV line on the right. It looks like this section of the new line already has the conductors strung on it.
Dundreggan Estate :: NH3215
The Dundreggan Estate covers about 4,000 hectares on the northern side of Glen Moriston. The estate was purchased by Trees for Life in 2008, and they have been working to restore the Caledonian Forest across the area. Much of the area is currently moorland, along with a conifer plantation and some native woodland.
Several parts of the estate have now been fenced off as exclosures to reduce overgrazing by deer. These areas are now being planted with native trees, as well as allowing natural regeneration.
