Loch Eck

Where we are

A picturesque picnic spot with lochside views

As you follow the road along the eastern shore of Loch Eck, stop at one of our picnic sites and enjoy gorgeous views across the loch. Jubilee Point picnic site is particularly photogenic, so don't forget to bring your camera.

Loch Eck is a great place for wildlife. Red squirrels forage its shores and deep under its surface swims Scotland's rarest freshwater fish – the powan. This relic from the ice age is a protected species and is only found here and in Loch Lomond.
