Old Photograph Hydroelectric Power Station Tummel Bridge Perthshire Scotland
Old photograph of the Hydroelectric Power Station at Tummel Bridge, Perthshire, Scotland. Built for the Scottish Power Company as part of the Tummel Valley hydro-electric scheme, the station, fed by a catchment area of 381 square miles, gathered into Loch Rannoch and a smaller reservoir at Dunalastair, and delivered from an aqueduct. Two generating sets, producing a total of 34mW, are unusual in that each turbine has two horizontal runnes and spiral casings.
