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!

Hi Jane, another great entry on your blog...been long time since we were properly in Galloway/ Dumfries region and your pictures remind me what a wonderful area it is...I have to say that we mostly visited due to my running pursuits..oh yes..rather selfish but I think the family enjoyed the camping anyway!
Great news about Geoffrey's award- very well worth celebrating - congratulations!

Kind regards, Denis.
