Loch Kinnabus

The largest of the lochs of the Oa peninsula in the extreme south of the island of Islay (Argyll and Bute), Loch Kinnabus is located 4½ miles (7 km) west southwest of Port Ellen. It extends to 45 ha (111 acres), receives water from Loch Ard Achadh, together with various small streams and field drains, and casts off the Abhainn Ghil to the northwest. The loch supports a recreational fishery and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds manage areas around the shores of the loch which serve as feeding areas for chough and over-wintering Greenland white-fronted geese.
