Black hole in the water
The dark shape in the smooth water of Upper Glendevon reservoir is actually the steep-sided spillway from the dam. Although the Lower Glendevon reservoir dates from WW1 having been built around 1917-1918 mainly by German prisoner-of-war labour (to ensure water supplies to Dunfermline and the important adjoining naval base of Rosyth) this Upper reservoir is more recent, having been completed in 1955.
