Mullardoch Dam

Mullardoch Dam was completed in 1952 as part of the Affric-Beauly Hydro Scheme. Mullardoch is a particularly large dam, measuring 727m (2385ft) long and 48m (457.5ft) high. It was built in two wings which met on an island in the middle at an angle of 140°. The road to the site had to be entirely rebuilt before construction could begin. The dam diverts water, through a tunnel, into Loch Benevean and on to Fasnakyle Power Station.

The Loch Mullardoch area is also famous for walking, being surrounded by at least ten Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000ft or 914m)
