Loch Ericht

Loch Ericht (Scottish Gaelic Loch Eireachd) is a freshwater loch on the border between Perthshire and the Highland Scotland in the Grampian Mountains. It is situated at a height of 351 metres (1153 feet) above sea level and has a north-east to south-west orientation. The village of Dalwhinnie lies at the north east end of the loch. The loch is 14.5 miles (23 km) in length and has a surface area of approximately 7 square miles. It is the tenth largest freshwater lake in Scotland and has a good reputation for its trout fishing. Traditional hunting areas border the loch. These are called forests; the chief of which is Ben Alder Forest.
