Loch Venachar

A loch lying at 82m (269 feet) above sea level in the Trossachs district of Stirling Council Area, Loch Venachar extends a distance of 6 miles (10 km) between Callander and Brig o' Turk. The Black Water empties from Loch Achray into the western end of Loch Venachar and at its eastern end emerges the River Teith which carries the name Eas Gobhain before it merges with the River Leny at Callander. On its south shore stands the mansion of Invertrossachs which was visited by Queen Victoria in 1869. Loch Venachar serves as a compensation reservoir, as part of the scheme centred of Loch Katrine which supplies Glasgow with drinking water.
