Corrievarkie Pumped Storage Hydro

There will be public exhibitions presenting the proposed Corrievarkie Pumped Storage Hydro Project on:

  • Wednesday the 9th of March at Kinloch Rannoch Village Hall between 3pm and 9pm.  
  • Wednesday the 23rd of March at Dalwhinnie Community Trust Village Hall between 3pm and 9pm.

The Project is a pumped storage hydro scheme with a generating capacity of up to 600MW, and is situated between Loch Ericht, Loch Garry and Loch Rannoch, approximately 9 km south west of Dalnaspidal and 11 km north of Bridge of Ericht. The Project is designed to generate hydroelectricity during peak loadings on the National Grid. The Project reservoir will be replenished during times of surplus electricity by pumping water up from Loch Ericht, and returning this water to Loch Ericht at times of generation via an underground tunnel.

During these exhibitions, presentation boards, drawings and project information will be available including representatives from the Developer and the consultant team. These can also be accessed through a virtual consultation room. Further details on the Project, including how to access the virtual consultation room, can be found on the Project Website: Anyone wishing to make comments relating to the Project to the Developer can do so at the public exhibitions or by emailing the Project email address:

Comments made to the Developer at the public exhibition or via email are not representations to the Energy Consents Unit (ECU), Perth and Kinross Council or The Highland Council. When the application is submitted there will be an opportunity to make representations to the ECU, Perth and Kinross and the Highland Council as part of the planning process.
