Kelly Cut

(Kelly Aqueduct)

An aqueduct which traverses the slopes 2 miles (3 km) southeast of Inverkip, the Kelly Cut conveys water from the Kelly Reservoir for 3 miles (5 km) northeast to the Compensation Reservoir below Loch Thom. Authorised by an Act of Parliament of 1845, which also brought about the construction of the Kelly and Crawhin Reservoirs, the Cut augments Robert Thom's scheme which supplies water to Greenock.
