Bishop’s Glen Reservoir also known as Dunoon Reservoir used to be the source for drinking water for the town of Dunoon on the Cowal peninsula, Argyll and Bute, Scotland, a function now satisfied via Loch Eck. Records show that this impounding reservoir was created before 1880. The Balgaidh Burn is the main inflow and outflow.

The angling of the Bishops Glen Reservoir is managed by the Dunoon and District Angling Club.
