Stable Lake

An ornamental lake on the Douglas Estate in South Lanarkshire, Stable Lake lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) north of the village of Douglas. It takes its name from the substantial former stable block of Douglas Castle, which is said to have been able to accommodate 100 horses. Around 2003, the lake was drained and dredged by the estate and a recreational fishery established for local people. A way-marked trail has been established around the lake.
