For further details, see another contributor's earlier photograph: NS4276 : Garshake Reservoir - Drained. For two distant views, one taken when the reservoir was still in use, and the other 21 years later, see NS4276 : Garshake Reservoir and NS4276 : Garshake Reservoir.

The present photograph was taken from the northern corner of the fence that surrounds the disused reservoir. As a check on view direction, a small double bump at the centre of the skyline is Dumbowie Hill, its more pointed SE summit behind and just to the left of its more rounded NW one: Link

In one of his "Streetwise" features in the Lennox Herald newspaper (issue of 28th July 2006), Billy Scobie records that a German sea-mine was discovered embedded in the silt in this reservoir in 1982.
