    Devonshaw Quarry Site


    The 42-acre Devonshaw Quarry site, also known as Powmill Quarry, has not been in commercial use for many years and now provides a well-hidden yet visually stunning location, combining a wealth of natural and man-made features. Two picturesque lochans, created by flooding of the former quarry workings, are well known locally for their crystal-clear water with the larger lochan also boasting its own beach. Areas of huge boulders surround the lochans, leading to exposed rock faces and a considerable amount of mixed woodland including some specimen ancient trees.

    The northern section enjoys outstanding views to the Ochil Hills and beyond and includes a steep field known as Gartwhinzean Meadow, which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for its orchids and other diverse fauna. A path runs around part of the site perimeter and there are several tracks through the woodlands. Planning consent has already been granted for part of the area to be developed as a mixed-use residential and tourism/leisure site. More recently, the site has unfortunately suffered from considerable environmental damage including fly-tipping and littering - with the lochans containing the wreckage of numerous dumped vehicles and other debris.
