Forfar Loch Country Park

A country park with a leisure centre, woodland, loch and grassland habitats, Forfar Loch lies immediately to the west of Forfar in Angus. A nature trail follows the 3 mile (5 km) perimeter of the loch and there are bird watching hides. The outflow at the western end of the loch is the source of the Dean water which flows past Glamis on its way to join the River Isla. Partly drained in the 18th-century when the loch was lowered by 5m (16 feet) in depth and a mile (1.5 km) in length, the Inch of Forfar Loch is associated with St. Margaret who is said to have founded a chapel there.
