NM69SE 22 68331 93376

Weir [NAT]

OS 1:10,000 map, 1976.

(Listed among 'Smaller schemes'). Morar (1948): dam and power station on the River Morar. Average annual output 3 million units.

J Miller 2002.

This short weir has been constructed across the River Morar below Rhubana Lodge (NM69SE 23) and a short distance upstream from the viaduct NM69SE 15. This short river forms the overflow from the extensive waters of Loch Morar, and here forms the boundary between the parishes of Arisaig and Moidart (to the S) and Glenelg (to the N).

The location assigned to this record defines the centre of the weir. The location of the generating station and any power transmission equipment cannot be established from the available map evidence.
