Carman Reservoir
See NS3778 : Carman Reservoir for much more on the reservoir. The present picture, a wide-angle view, is intended to show much of the reservoir as well as a footpath that leads around it.

To give an indication of the angular width of the image, the small patch of woodland on the hillside in the right background, on the far side of the reservoir, is the site of NS3779 : Millburn Muir transmitter, due north from here, while the furthest visible part of the path, winding around the left-hand edge of the reservoir, is due WSW.

The prominent background hill, right of centre, is Carman Hill (NS37177948).
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.
