Loch Katrine Aqueduct

A Thomas Annan photograph, 1876, of the Loch Katrine aqueduct crossing the Endrick Valley on its way to Mugdock Reservoir near Milngavie. The distinctive "hump" of Dumgoyne is in the distance, centre.

As Glasgow's population and industries grew, the demand for fresh water continued to increase. A new pipeline was laid alongside the existing aqueduct in 1866 to carry an additional 10 million gallons to the city, increasing the capacity of Glasgow's water supply to 50 million gallons per day.
