Falls of Conon and Strathconon

The Falls of Conon are at the foot of Loch Luichart. The Luichart Dam was built over the Falls of Conon during the building of the Conon Hydro Electric Scheme between the 1940s and 1960s.

The Strathconon Estate lies nine miles west of Dingwall. There is evidence of humans in Strathconon since the Bronze Age but the population was forced out in the 1840s to make way for sheep and a deer forest.

This photograph is from the book 'Picturesque Ross-shire, Strathpeffer and Dingwall' published in Dingwall, circa 1900
