High Kilmacolm Reservoir is situated in an attractive rural setting in Inverclyde, around 5 miles north/east of the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park and approximately 5 miles west of Kilmacolm. The site is approximately half a mile walk from an access road which leads closest to the site. The surrounding countryside provides for a variety of outdoor pursuits and is popular for golf, walking, running, cycling and water sports.

High Kilmacolm Reservoir originally contributed a supply of water for the water district within the Parish of Kilmacolm and has since been drained and disused now for some time. The site and reservoir are accessed via a single-track access road (signposted for Hardridge Farm when leaving Gateside Road) leading from the main road at Gateside Road coming in from the direction of Kilmacolm. From the end of this single track road, access to the Kilmacolm High Reservoir must be made on foot following a path. The land has potential for various uses and should be viewed by any prospective purchasers.
