Översikt

Ingen har röstat än

Clackmannanshire has a rich mining history and many signs of this heritage are still visible. None are so impressive as Gartmorn Dam, lying at the heart of the local Country Park and Nature Reserve. This 170 acre reservoir was engineered by Sir John Erskine, the 6th Earl of Mar, to power the pumps which drained his Sauchie mines. The water power his project provided was the catalyst for Alloa's industrial development.

Today Gartmorn is a peaceful retreat for people walking, cycling, horse riding, fishing or picnicing. There is an extensive path network throughout the "Wee County" and the Park links many of these routes with local communities. The area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is an important site for migratory wildfowl in the winter months.

The Park gates are open from 8.30am until dusk every day and the visitor centre is open until 7.00pm from April to September.

Good circular walk around the dam.

Did you know that if you are a wheelchair user you can only get all the way round if you travel clockwise around the dam ?

-

Did you know that Beechwood Park Care Home - activities organiser fiona lancaster organised a sponsored walk raising money for the home, walkers of all ages, young and old including wheelchair users - walked whole area of the dam 3 half miles.
Everyone enjoyed the walk, it was good fun.
