Lochgoin Reservoir


(Loch Goin Reservoir)

Straddling the borders of East Renfrewshire and East Ayrshire, Lochgoin (or Loch Goin) Reservoir is situated 4 miles (6 km) southwest of Eaglesham. To the northeast lies the Dunwan Dam and Melowther Hill. Extending to an area of 69.7 ha (172 acres) and retained by an earth embankment dam, the reservoir was built in the 19th century as part of a scheme to power the mills of Eaglesham. It is now operated by Scottish Water for the supply of drinking-water.
