Megget Reservoir to Talla Reservoir - Scottish Walks.

Wednesday 29th June. 2011.

Halfway along St Mary’s Loch there is a turning for Tweedsmuir along a single track road. While one has to be careful on these tiny roads, there is also the feeling of being in the semi wilderness, with sheep sauntering nonchalantly along the route, streams by your side and a severe lack of motor vehicles, they have their own beauty. The sights to behold here, apart from the endless undulating hills, are a couple of reservoirs, which both supply Edinburgh
 

Megget Reservoir is first up and a fine roadway walk may be had along its three miles or if you prefer driving, there are plenty of lay bys to offer a chance of a break.

Next, almost out of the blue, comes the Talla Reservoir. A small bridge almost surprises you and while the bridge is around a half mile from the reservoir, the downward view is great. On this particular day, I doubt if I saw more than ten cars in over two hours. Bliss.
