Field Visit (2010)

This relatively small dam receives water from a number of catchments across, including water from the pipeways which feed Misgeach station (see separate item). The water is then piped through the hill to Monar dam and down the cascade of power stations including Deanie and Culligran (see separate items). Water spilling over the fixed spillway enters the River Farrar catchment whose flow is regulated further down the valley at Beannachran dam before passing through Culligran, Aigas and Kilmorack stations. This is a small and relatively functional dam with limited architectural detailing. PL Payne, 1988, 5; E Wood, 2002, 38; J Miller, 2002.
