Loch Lochy is a long, straight and wide loch in Lochaber, Highland, Scotland. The loch stands alongside the A82 route to Loch Ness and Inverness, so it's an ideal spot to stop and enjoy the landscape and hospitality given by the local business area. Its maximum length is 15 km (9 miles), a width of approximatively 1 km (0.6 miles) and the maximum depth reaches 162 m (530 feet), being the third deepest lake of Scotland. From the southwestern end the River Lochy flows while the Caledonian Canal connects its northeast side to Loch Oich. The loch is located in an extremely amazing region with mountains and it is popular for wild brown trout fishing.
