Baddinsgill Reservoir, Borders, Scotland

Baddinsgill - Before
Baddinsgill - after

Baddinsgill reservoir is a water catchment reservoir situated near West Linton in the Pentland Hills in Scotland. The upstream face consisted of pre-cast concrete blocks placed on a granular drainage layer. Many of the blocks had suffered weathering over the years resulting in a reduced protection against wave attack.

The surface of the concrete blocks was cleaned and primed before a minimum thickness of 100mm Open Stone Asphalt (OSA) was placed over the top 8m of the upstream face.


  • 2400 m2 of upstream face strengthened.
  • Minimum of 100mm Open Stone Asphalt placed cleaned and primed surface.
