Threipmuir reservoir from Blacklaw. This might be a bit of a cheat as I was walking when I took this specific pic, but have cycled the route several times, so hope that is OK. It's a cracking view! http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3486/3824849399_fa3264255e.jpg And this is the top of the col to the ea...
