Black Loch

Where we are

Enjoy a gentle lochside stroll on the edge of Limerigg Wood

A wide, surfaced path leads along the bank of the Black Loch on the southern side of Limerigg Wood. It’s a good spot for bird watching: there are often wildfowl on the loch. On days when there are no birds, it’s still a great place to blow the cobwebs away.



Black Loch is well stocked with trout. You can buy fishing permits from Black Loch Fishery.
