Loch Faskally and Pitlochry dam
Although a relatively modest 15MW capacity, Pitlochry hydroelectric station is the last in a chain of power stations in the Tummel - Garry scheme, bringing water from Loch Ericht to Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, finally here to join the River Tummel and finally the Tay. The engineer Sir Edward MacColl, deputy chairman of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board, decided that the dam should be part of a public walk with access to the fish ladder (see 'The Hydro Boys' by Emma Wood, Luath Press 2004).
