This is one of the smallest of lochs in the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and lies between Loch Venachar and Loch Katrine. Sheltered by surrounding hills, including the two largest in the area, Ben A’an and Ben Venue, it provides calm waters protected from the wind and is very popular with anglers.
The loch’s main attraction for fishing is brown trout, but sea trout, pike, perch and salmon also dwell in its waters. Its average depth is about 11 metres (36 ft). It is also a pleasing spot for photographers, providing stunning reflection shots of the surrounding hills and woodlands in its placid waters.
It is managed by Loch Achray Conservation Association and fishing is allowed by permit only.
