Loch an Draing is located in Western Highlands at an altitude of 44 m (144 ft) above sea level. Known for its fly fishing, the loch holds decent stocks of fish, including arctic charr. It is surrounded by ancient woodland and moorland teeming with wildlife, so is also a great destination for walkers and wildlife lovers.
Nearby towards the coast is Rua Reidh Lighthouse which offers clifftop walks, rock pools to explore and the chance of viewing otters, seals, eagles, whales, dolphins and porpoises. Legend has it that the lake and its surrounding area was the haunt of a fairy known as the Gille Dubh. From Loch an Draing, it is just a short walk to meet the track leading to the beach at Camus Mor.
