Eliburn Park Reservoir
This walk visits the pretty Eliburn Reservoir in Livingston, West Lothian.
The reservoir is located in Eliburn park just west of Livingston centre. There's some nice trails in the park running around the small lake into Livingston Old Wood. Look out for water loving birds on the lake and woodland birds in the wooded areas.
The 3 acre lake is also a popular fishing spot with species including Tench, Bream, Roach, Perch, Ide, Hybrid, Barbel and Rudd available.
