Gryfe Reservoir

A collection of photos of the larger of the two reservoirs of the same name, which were completed in 1872 (after the others in the group). They are found to the east of Loch Thom - I shall reproduce the same map from my previous post which shows all the reservoirs in this area. All photos were taken from the road along the south bank in October 2008.

The winter blue of the sky and water is superb,I will have to persuade my wife to take me up there.[I don't drive]

Thanks Adullamite and Gerry. I just wish the sky and water had been that blue on my visits to Loch Thom and the Compensation Reservoir (not to mention other places I have yet to post here).

Hi Jane, I was there earlier in the year and not quite such a bright day, but it is a nice spot. Your colours and perspectives are great. (...and thanks so much for your comments on my stuff too).
How's 'Sense of Place' shaping with you? Kindest regards, Denis.
