Contest #717: Loch Mullardoch Dam, Scotland

The Loch Mullardoch Dam is located in northwest Scotland was constructed between 1947 and 1952 to provide a source of water for power generation. Water from Loch Mullardoch is taken via a 5 km tunnel south to Loch Benevean where it ends up at the Fasnakyle power generation station.

The reference to Munros is to mountains or hills above 914 metres / 3000’. There are 282 Munros across Scotland, with 10 of them around Loch Mullardoch. Climbers of these 10 Munros park at the dam and can start climbing from there or can take a boat down the lake to avoid walking down the lake.
