Gladhouse from Top to Bottom

A video recording of Elspeth Smith’s talk about the Gladhouse Reservoir can now be seen along with a copy of her Powerpoint presentation. Just click on the header for this item and the links to the talk and ppt will appear.

Elspeth is a resident Midlothian Ranger working in partnership with Scottish Water with specific responsibilities around Gladhouse Reservoir.

This ranger posting is part of a larger project to ‘Enable Responsible Access’ to reservoirs in Scotland (in response to the issues highlighted by the mass visitations during the 2020 lockdown).

Elspeth presented a talk to the Esk Valley Trust, as part of the Midlothian Outdoor Festival, in October 2023. In it she covered the work that she has been doing at Gladhouse Reservoir. Her talk can be seen here and the associated Powerpoint presentation here.

Unfortunately, during her Zoom presentation the Screen Share function did not function so, very gamely, she presented the talk without the Powerpoint presentation but you can see her illustrations by downloading that file.
