Old reservoir
Old reservoir
The reservoir does not appear on the first-edition map (surveyed in 1860), but it is shown on the second-edition map (revised in 1896).

The old reservoir is just a short distance to the east of the Cameron Burn, as shown on the 1:25000 map, and made apparent in a view in the opposite direction, NS4582 : Old reservoir. The line of the fence just ahead in the present picture is marked on the 1:25000 map. The reservoir itself is marked on the same map (but, oddly, not at some larger scales; at least, not at the time I am writing this).

The cover shown here is oriented SE—NW. That the view direction for the present picture is north-west can be confirmed by using the distant peaks as a reference: Beinn Dubh (NS3395) is directly ahead, at the centre of the skyline, about 17½km (11 miles) away.

Through a small gap just to its right is the top of the Cobbler (NN2505), almost twice as far away (30½km, 19 miles).

Ben Lomond, considerably closer (22km, 13½ miles), is prominent on the right.
