Find out about the fascinating history of Catcleugh Reservoir and visit the Black House, the last remaining dwelling that was built to house the reservoir construction workers in the late 19th Century. Lovingly restored it contains many artefacts of the period.

We will also take a short easy stroll through the woodland to the Dam Wall to view the reservoir, passing some remarkable features of Victorian engineering on the way. Also included is a visit to the church and school that were paramount to the lives of the workers and their families.

Meet at: Catcleugh Reservoir entrance – Heading north on the A68 the entrance gate
is 1 mile past Byrness where you can drive in and park in front of the Black House.
Time: 1.30 pm to 3.30pm Cost: £8 per person / children free
