Harlaw Reservoir is near Balerno. The dam was constructed in the 1840s to provide water for the city. The reservoir is no longer used for the public water supply, but along with the neighbouring Threipmuir Reservoir it now provides flood prevention water storage. There’s a small visitor centre near the dam. The map covers open land NE of the reservoir and the paths around the wooded shores and across the Threipmuir dam.
