Lintrathen, Loch of

A reservoir and nature reserve in the Braes of Angus, situated at the southern end of Glen Isla, 4 miles (6 km) northeast of Alyth. Along with the larger Backwater Reservoir, Lintrathen supplies water to Dundee, the towns of Angus and NE Perth and Kinross. Impounded by an earth embankment dam and operated by Scottish Water, it covers an area of 151.1 ha (373 acres). The reservoir supports a recreational fishery for brown and rainbow trout managed by Lintrathen Angling Association. Surrounded by farmland, the loch is visited by large numbers of wildfowl, wintering geese, whooper swans and the occasional osprey.
