Davan, Loch

A small and shallow loch in Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Loch Davan lies immediately north of Loch Kinord, 1½ miles (2.5 km) northwest of Dinnet and 6 miles (10 km) west of Aboyne. It is formed from a kettle-hole, remaining after glaciers covered this area. The loch has an average depth of around 1.2m (4 feet). The loch now forms part of the Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve and is also designated as a Special Protection Area (SPA) and Ramsar site because it supports internationally important numbers of wintering wildfowl and geese.
