Kerry Falls Power Station

A small hydro-electric power scheme in Wester Ross, the Kerry Falls power station is located 4½ miles (7 km) southeast of Gairloch. It has a generation capacity of 1 megawatt (MW) making use of a gross head of water of 56m (183 feet) from Loch Bad an Scalaig to produce an average of 5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity per year. Originally built to supply electricity to the isolated community in this area, the scheme is now an integral part of the national electricity supply network. The scheme was built by flamboyant contractor Willie Logan (1913-66) and officially opened in May 1952.
