Loch Fada, Islay

Loch Fada, Islay

Loch Fada, Islay is one of many Lochs on the Island that form part of Dunlossit Estate and are available to fish for brown trout if you have a permit. Loch Fada roughly translates to ‘The Long Long’ from Gaelic and on viewing Loch Fada from the higher vantage point you can see that is has been aptly named. The Loch is 730m long and 130m wide and is supplied by four small streams that flow in from the North and West, and lies at the foot of Beinn Dhubh, The Black Mountain which at 267m high offers great views towards Jura and the Sound of Jura, which was actually my intended destination this day but once I reached the Loch and started doing long exposures I lost track of time and ended up just staying at the Loch fort a while longer
