Loch Finlaggan

A loch in the northeast of the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides, Loch Finlaggan lies 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Port Askaig. Extending to 64.1 ha / 158.6 acres, this is the second biggest loch on the island after Loch Gorm. The ruins of a castle of the Lords of the Isles stand on Eilean Mor, a small islet at the north end of the loch and, on another small island close by, built originally as a crannog or island dwelling, the Council of the Lords of the Isles met. These events are interpreted by the Finlaggan Visitor Centre. Eilean Mhuireill, close to the southeastern shore of the loch, represents another crannog.
