Pitlochry Dam and Fish Ladder
One of the most impressive sites in Perthshire has to be the Pitlochry Dam and Fish Ladder. You might get lucky and see a salmon climb the specially constructed ladder that allows them to bypass the Pitlochry Dam and swim into manmade Loch Faskally. The ladder itself is 310 metres long and consists of 34 chambers linked together by tunnels that the salmon swim through. It enables around 5000 wild salmon to return to their spawning ground each year. Well worth a visit, especially after heavy rain when the dam opens the flood gates.
