Loch Moraig

Loch Moraig is a tranquil loch surrounded by tall Pine trees in the hills above Blair Atholl, over-shadowed by the lofty peaks of Beinn a' Ghlo Massif.  From Bridge of Tilt a minor road (signposted for Glenfender, Old Blair) takes you eastwards to a small grassy car park at Loch Moraig.

Beinn a' Ghlo Massif rises up out of the bare moorland and is made up of four distinct summits, which together form one of the biggest mountains in Perthshire.  Loch Moraig and Beinn a' Ghlo have both been declared an Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to the diversity of the flora.

On arrival at Loch Moraig the mallard ducks will welcome you but the hares will probably run away! Birds typical at Loch Moraig are Grey Heron, Whooper Swans, Wigeon, Lapwing, Little Grebe, Redshank & Cormorant - but don't forget the Mallards, Moorhens & Goldeneyes.
