Loganlea Reservoir

A small reservoir lying 3 miles (5 km) northwest of Penicuik, in the Pentland Hills to the south of Edinburgh, forming one of a network of reservoirs supplying that city with drinking water. Built in 1851 and located 259m (850 feet) above sea level, the reservoir is now on a route popular with walkers and supports a trout fishery. Impounded by an earth embankment dam, it covers an area of 10.3 ha (25 acres), contains 531 million litres (117 million gallons) of water and has a maximum depth of 15.5m (51 feet). Operated by Scottish Water, Loganlea is connected by the Logan Burn to the Glencorse Reservoir further down the valley.
