Dochart, Loch

A small loch in northwest Stirling Council Area, Loch Dochart lies at the western end of Glen Dochart, a mile to the east of Crianlarich and in the shadow of Ben More. It receives the River Fillan and is the source of the River Dochart. On a small wooded island in the loch stand the ruins of a castle, a former stronghold of the Campbells of Lochawe described by Dorothy Wordsworth in September 1803 as 'a place of retirement and peace'.
