Dindinnie Upper Reservoir


(Old Dindinnie Reservoir)

A small reservoir with an earth embankment dam in Dumfries and Galloway, Dindinnie Upper is located in rolling hills 2 miles (3 km) west of Stranraer. Also known as Old Dindinnie Reservoir, it was built 1907 by Stranraer Corporation Water Works for the supply of public drinking-water and is now operated by Scottish Water. Water from here, together with Dindinnie Lower Reservoir, lying immediately to the north, and Knockquhassen Reservoir situated a half-mile (1 km) to the south, are blended at Auchneel Treatment Works. These reservoirs are well stocked with rainbow and brown trout for recreational fishing.
