Take in tranquil views on our Blackmoorfoot walk
Short but sweet, this walk has tranquil woodland and wide views across the water and surrounding countryside. There are plenty of rest points along the way, so you can stop and take it all in. The return route is back the same way, so that you can avoid a less pleasant roadside journey around the western and northern sides of the reservoir.
