The road across the dam

Meig Dam is a dam across the River Meig, a tributary of the River Conon, in Strathconon. The dam forms part of the Conon hydro-electricity scheme collecting water from the River Meig. The Loch Meig reservoir feeds into the Loch Luichart reservoir which supplies Luichart Power Station on the River Conon.

As well as simply being a dam the structure also forms a crossing of the River Meig as part of the public road, connecting the U3118 from Achilty to the C1043 which runs through Strathconon to Scardroy, passing the Southern end of the dam.

This is one of few dams in Scotland which the public are able to drive across as most have locked gates to restrict access to authorised vehicles, although many can be accessed on foot.
