This is a wonderfully idyllic loch, with its boat house and picturesque timber footbridge, set within Faskally Forest close to a car park and picnic site. The circular walk around the loch shore is approximately 0.75 miles long, follow the path around the loch keeping a sharp lookout for Heron fishing in the reeds and maybe a Kingfisher quickly skimming over the water, but remember to watch where you walk because the frogs don't know the highway code! Red Squirrels can often be seen dancing in the trees.
