Clackmannanshire has a rich mining history and many signs of this heritage are still visible. None are so impressive as Gartmorn Dam, lying at the heart of the local 370 acre Country Park and Nature Reserve. The 170 acre reservoir was engineered by Sir John Erskine, the 6th Earl of Mar, to power the pumps which drained his Sauchie mines. The water power his project provided was the catalyst for Alloa's industrial development. There is an extensive path network throughout Clackmannanshire and the park links many of these routes with local communities. The area is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and is an important site for migratory wildfowl in the winter months. Many birds also live at Gartmorn all year round and breed here in the summer time. There are various lovely walks to take at Gartmorn Dam and Ramblers Scotland have introduced Medal Routes Walking Hubs, which include various routes round the dam. The park gates are open from 8.30 am until dusk every day.
