Swimmer descriptions

  • Added: 13/07/2019

    This end of the loch is in full sunlight for much of the day, and there are attractive spaces among the light birch trees between the single track road and the water. It's an attractive spot to spend a few hours.

    Despite this, the water is consistently cold in Loch Duntelchaig even on fine days, particularly early in the year (April to June), so be aware that children in particular will chill quickly in the water here.
