NO2204 : Ballo Reservoir dam by Bill Kasman
There is a walkway over the dam and a faint grassy path on the other side which ultimately leads to the road over the hills between Falkland and Leslie. From this point the main track turns right, circles Drumain Reservoir and returns to the bridge NO2204 : Bridge on road to Harperleas Reservoir, Lomond Hills

NO2104 : Remains of building, Lomond Hills by Bill Kasman
To one side of the track not far past this junction NO2204 : Post on track to Harperleas Reservoir, Lomond Hills can be found this short section of wall. It looks too well built to be a field boundary or a sheep fank and may be all that remains of a house. This is not the only building remains in the park and they are a reminder that these hills were once populated and busy. The limekilns near East Lomond NO2305 : Damage to information boards at limekilns, Lomond hills and the numerous disused quarries in the park are also testament to this. The remains of a field boundary wall can be seen in the background and it is nowhere near as well built as this section of wall the stones of which have clearly been cemented in place.

NO2203 : Echo Point? Really? by Bill Kasman
On the path from the water treatment works to Craigmead I found this sign but try as I might I couldn't elicit any semblance of an echo. Maybe I just don't have the lung power for it!

NO2304 : Path to Drumain Reservoir, Lomond Hills by Bill Kasman
The path indicated by this signpost NO2304 : Path on Lomond Hills disappears into the trees heading for Drumain Reservoir. This path is quite rough and indistinct at times and probably isn't the wisest choice for anyone looking for a pleasant Sunday afternoon stroll although it is waymarked by yellow arrows painted on the trees.

NO2204 : Beer cans and burnt logs by Bill Kasman
On the path through the woods to Drumain Reservoir NO2304 : Path to Drumain Reservoir, Lomond Hills I found these burnt logs. Whoever did this was acting in an irresponsible manner. Starting a fire in a woodland is not a good idea!
