Orrin Dam, Ross-shire

Water is drawn from the River Orrin above Loch Achonachie. Two dams separated by a small hill hold back the river to form Loch Orrin. From there water is diverted by tunnel and pipeline to the Orrin power station on the southern shore of Loch Achonachie in Strathconon. This was the third phase of the Conon Valley scheme and opened in 1961
