Lovely spot with a variety of dog walking options for all levels of fitness. The midges however should keep you on the move!

Easy parking and after a short uphill stretch you are on easy walking paths round the old reservoir with wildlife to be seen .Helps if you like dogs!! If you are more adventurous you can access forestry roads to Innellan and Camels Hump

Takes about 30mins to walk around the path from the lower car park. Great walk when the weather is good!

Well worth the visit, lovely walk, bit steep in places but well worth the climb. Lovely woodland walk, not muddy as it is a gravel track most of the way and steps. The damn and so quiet and tranquil with woodland walks and waterfalls.

Brief walk up from the esplanade took us into the uphill path and followed by a brief circuit of the reservoir and a circular return to our start point over a few bridges. Few minor steps did not cause us any headaches either. Many longer...More

Nice little walk either around the reservoir or follow little tracks in the wooded area. My dog absolutely loved it, plenty of shade on a warm summers day. You can fish there also I think (with permit). Will definitely return as just moved to the...More

An easy walk with beautiful views. We took a little picnic and stopped at the fishery to enjoy the swans swimming past (pic attached) Keep an eye out for red squirrels we didn't see the sign until we were at the other end!!
