Pitlochry Dam and Power Station
Pitlochry Dam and Power Station
Pitlochry Dam is part of the Tummel Valley hydro scheme. This scheme was started in the 1930s and collects water from 1800 square kilometres of the Grampian Mountains. The area became one of the first in Scotland to be developed for hydro electricity. The dam and power station at Pitlochry opened in 1951. Today it produces enough power for about 15000 homes.
