Slopes of Carman Hill
Slopes of Carman Hill
The NS3779 : Ancient hill-fort on Carman Hill is further up the slope, behind the point from which the picture was taken. Boulders, perhaps dislodged from the fort over the centuries, litter these lower slopes.

NS3778 : Carman Reservoir can be seen at the foot of the slope, with NS4274 : Dumbuck Quarry beyond its left-hand (north-eastern) edge, and Dumbarton Rock behind its centre.

See NS3779 : Slopes of Carman Hill for a view uphill from the same place.
Carman Reservoir :: NS3778

Known locally as the Dam. 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.
