Carman Reservoir
Before the reservoir (now disused) was formed, the body of water was called Carman Loch. It was sometimes used for curling. See NS3778 : Carman Reservoir for further details. NS3779 : Millburn Muir transmitter and its reflection can be seen in the background.

Carman Reservoir

See Link (in a Geograph article) for further information. 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.
