Pitlochry hydro-electric power station and River Tummel.

The Tummel hydro-electric power scheme for the generation of hydro-electric power is located in the Grampian Mountains, between Loch Ericht, Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, in Perth and Kinross, Scotland.

The scheme was conceived by the Edinburgh architects Tarbolton & Ochterlony. Following Matthew Ochterlony's death in 1946 the scheme was progressed alone by Harold Tarbolton, works beginning in 1947. Tarbolton died before the project was completed.[1]
