Loch Doon

Argyll and Bute, Scotland
Family Friendly

Loch Doon is situated in Carrick, Scotland. The lake was dammed in the 1930s, elevating about 8.22 meters (27 feet), in order to deliver seasonal depositing for the Galloway hydroelectric power scheme. When rainfall is rich, water is derived to the lake from the Water of Deugh through a tunnel system. It is a fabulous and a peaceful spot which gives a restful vacation with fresh air and some breath-taking landscape. In the 13th century, it was a site of Balloch Castle, which was spoiled in 16th century by King James V as part of a general policy of diminishing the force of barons.
