Faskally

The River Tummel used to run through Faskally, a meadow surrounded by wooded hills. The area was flooded by the North of Scotland HydroElectric Board's Tummel/Garry scheme. The Pitlochry Dam was built across the River Tummel, between 1947 and 1950, creating Loch Faskally.
Faskally House still stands on the east side of the loch.
