Lednock Power Station

A small and remote hydro-electric generating station in the Breadalbane district of W Perth & Kinross, the Lednock Power Station lies on the northwest shore of the Loch Lednock Reservoir at 410m (1345 feet) above sea level, between Loch Tay and Loch Earn, 6 miles (10 km) northwest of Comrie. Completed in 1961, this station forms part of the Breadalbane Hydro-Electric Power Scheme. Fed by a system of tunnels and aqueducts descending from Lochan Breaclaich, water passes through a Francis turbine which drives a generator developing a modest 3.2 megawatts (MW) of capacity. It drains into Loch Lednock, which is a reservoir feeding the St. Fillans Power Station.

The station is run owned and operated by the Perth-based utility company Scottish and Southern Energy plc.
