Hydro Dams and Tunnels

The advent of hydro electric power tranformed homes and communities, not only bringing energy but also workers from a’ the airts. This section of the project focuses on the Lednock dam and power station, near Comrie, Perthshire, which is one of the seven covered by the The Breadalbane Scheme. Among the workers were the ‘tunnel tigers’, the men who dug the tunnel broke a world record in 1955.
