    Default Quoich, Loch

    Loch Quoich (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Chuaich) is a loch and reservoir situated west of Loch Garry approximately 40k m northwest of Fort William, Lochaber, Scotland.

    The name means "loch of the cup/quaich".

    Both lochs form part of the Glen Garry hydroelectricity project commissioned by the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board in the 1950s.
    The dam on Loch Quoich is the largest rockfill dam in Scotland at 320 m long and 38 m high. The scheme was completed in 1962.

    A bleak and desolate place in winter, very exposed, very little cover around if youíre camping. However it is still beautiful. Either go prepared for rapid weather change or donít go.
    It did'nt look to steep from the top, it did from the bottom...

    I'd add to the above that it's a bleak and desolate place in summer but with the added attraction of midgies
