Overflow from Carman Reservoir
Overflow from Carman Reservoir
For more on the reservoir itself, see NS3778 : Carman Reservoir.

The overflow is immediately channelled below ground; about 150 metres to the ENE, it emerges again from a pipe (NS3778 : Stream flowing towards Poachy Glen), and flows across the moor towards some woods; there, it falls in a series of cascades: LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link

After just a short distance in the woods, the stream flows into the Poachy Burn.
Carman Reservoir
The reservoir, which was officially opened in 1886, is now disused; there is a trout fishery based alongside it. Carman Reservoir was created by damming and enlarging an existing Carman Loch, which was itself artificial: the loch had been created in connection with the nearby Millburn Works; it was also occasionally used for curling.
