Remains of a road :: NS3878

An old road ascended the slopes to the west of Renton and passed the southern end of Carman Loch (as it was known before it became a reservoir). A path ascending through the woods is part of the old road, but the most visible remains are on the flat muir to the south-east of the reservoir, where the road is bounded by two parallel gorse-bearing ridges spaced about 14 metres apart. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view with marker pins on the line of the road.

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.
