gartmorn dam - clackmannanshire
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 370 acre Country Park and Nature Reserve.

The 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. An orienteering course is also available - please ask at the Visitor Centre or contact us using the details below.

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. Many birds also live at Gartmorn all year round and breed here in the summer time.
