Dubh Loch

A reservoir retained by an earth embankment dam to the southeast, Dubh Loch is located in the Knapdale Forest of Argyll and Bute. This is one of the smallest of a significant group of reservoirs, known as the Glen Clachaig Feeder Reservoir System, which were built to supply water to the Crinan Canal. The reservoirs were named in 1814 by the engineer Hugh Baird (1770 - 1827) and are now managed by Scottish Canals.
