Power Station Turned Off

For the whole of this week the Bonnington Power Station will be turned off to allow for maintenance work. This means that the weir at the top of the reserve will not be diverting water through the pipes to the surge tank, and as a result the clyde will be higher than usual, making the waterfalls all the more spectacular!

This increased water level, combined with the damp weather we have experienced recently, means this will be a fantastic opportunity to see the river in full spate, which is when Bonnington and Corra Linn are at their best. Whether you have visited us before or have never been to the Falls of Clyde before, this week would make a brilliant time to plan a walk around the reserve.

Hope to see you out and about in the woods!
