Loch Ereray

(Loch Eirearaigh)

A small, shallow, low-lying loch on the NW coast of the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Loch Ereray (Gael: Loch Eirearaigh) lies at the mouth of Glen Ereray, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northwest of Brue, and receives the River Ereray from the south. It is separated from the Atlantic by a narrow shingle ridge, which is regularly overwashed by winter storms. In 2004, it was reported that algal blooms were prevalent in the summer months, poisoning the water and drastically affecting its role as a fishery.
