Loch Awe

Loch Awe is the third largest freshwater loch in Scotland with a surface area of nearly 15 square miles. It is also the longest freshwater loch in Scotland measuring around 23 miles in length. The loch runs roughly parallel to Loch Etive and Loch Fyne and is renowned for its brown trout fishing. There are several crannogs and ruins along Loch Awe, including Kilchurn Castle at the north end. Water from Loch Awe is pumped into a reservoir which serves the Cruachan Hydro-electric power station near the village of Lochawe.
