Loch Eck is situated in the north of Dunoon, on the Cowal peninsula, in the district of Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It is the only naturally occurring habitat of the powan, a kinf of freshwater whitefish, apart from Loch Lomond. The lake is a reservoir with a dam of 0.87 m high (2.85 feet), which was finished in 1973. On the shores of the loch a small and exclusive development of holiday home lodges can be found, named Loch Eck Country Lodges. The loch is a perfect freshwater for fishing and is a great spot for wildlife. The hills around the loch are highly attractive and rewarding for hill walking.
