Akermoor Loch

A small upland loch in the Central Scottish Borders, Akermoor Loch lies 2½ miles (4 km) southeast of Ettrickbridge. Since 1971 the loch has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), noted for its standing-water habitat and wintering wildfowl. In the 18th century marl (a form of lime) was extracted for agricultural use, while today it is fished for its brown trout.
