Closed Season! Harlaw and Threipmuir are now closed, no fishing is allowed on either reservoir. We open again on the 1st of April 2021.

Balerno Village Trust are hosting their AGM and open evening on Wednesday 27th June 2018, 7 to 9pm at the St Joseph's Centre, Balerno. Anyone interested in the future plans for Harlaw House is welcome to attend. There will be a presentation, refreshments and chance to discuss the project. Sam Foster appointed architect for the project will be at the open evening. 

Balerno Village Trust are investigating leasing Harlaw House Visitor Centre from Edinburgh City Council to improve facilities and develop or expand the services offered.

Hear details of our Hooked on Harlaw open day as reported by Nigel Duncan for Crystal FM (107.4FM).

Some nice brown trout for a group of visiting American anglers fishing Threipmuir on an Orvis guided day. Orvis have a shop with fly fishing section a few miles from the reservoir in Edinburgh city centre. Thanks to Lee Currie, Orvis guide, for sending in the photos.


After a major refurbishment Balerno Post Office is now open again and available to sell day permits. Formerly known as The Letter Box Bistro, look for Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen in the same location on Main Street, Balerno. As well as the Post Office counter, Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen, as the name suggests, also offer food and drink. See their new website to book a table. Thanks all at Carlyle's Bar and Kitchen for their continued investment in Balerno.
