Pitlochry Dam Visitor Centre opened its doors in January 2017 and since then has welcomed almost 500,000 visitors to its year-round, free to enter, exhibition and café. Situated on the banks of Loch Faskally and overlooking the iconic hydro dam and power station the Centre boasts two exhibition areas which outline the unique history of hydro-electricity and showcases the social, environmental and engineering impacts of bringing power to the Highlands.

There is also a 60 seat café, proving very popular with tourists and locals alike, which serves freshly prepared local produce. And when the coffee and scones are finished visitors have an opportunity to browse the small well stocked shop which houses a range of souvenirs and gifts which have been carefully sourced from small local suppliers.

On the lower ground-floor a multi-purpose room can be used as an education space, meeting room or small conference facility for up to 60 delegates
