Loch Vaich

A reservoir in Easter Ross, Loch Vaich is remotely located 2½ miles (4 km) northeast of Loch Glascarnoch. It was built in 1957 as part of the second phase of the Conon Hydro-Electric Power Scheme. It is retained by a substantial C-listed concrete dam, which is 257m (843 feet) in length and 37.5m (123 feet) in height. This was designed by James Shearer (1881-62) and George Annand (1914-64). Water passes from this reservoir via a tunnel to Loch Glascarnoch.
