    Default Gladhouse Reservoir

    Gladhouse Reservoir, formerly Moorfoot Loch, is a reservoir in Midlothian, Scotland, five miles (8 km) south of Penicuik. It is the largest area of freshwater in the Lothians.

    The 460-acre (1.9 km2) reservoir in the Moorfoot Hills is one of a group of reservoirs which supply Edinburgh with water. It is fed by the River South Esk.
    Gladhouse Reservoir is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest or SSSI, and a Special Protection Area. It is an important roosting site for Anser brachyrhynchus, the Pink-footed Goose.

    There are three islands in the reservoir.

    Went yesterday, bit windy but a nice paddle in the sun with the Ospreys flying about. Two other groups there too. The carpark at 55.763N 3.130W on the South side of the lake (described at "Gladhouse Reservoir circuit" page on WalkHighlands) is definitely available & open, not sure about the one on the North side.
