Clatteringshaws Loch

This beautiful reservoir (which was created by damming the River Dee as part of the Hydro Electric Scheme) is in Galloway Forest in the south of Scotland. We went there a few times in the early 2000s. There's a visitor centre there too but we were there each time out of season when it was closed, unfortunately.

There were some extremely tame robins and chaffinches in the car park which took food out of the hand. All we had to offer was a crisp but they seemed to like it!
