Loch Hempriggs

The largest of the Thrumster Lochs in the E of Caithness, Loch Hempriggs lies a mile (1.8 km) north of Thrumster. Approximately circular, it has a radius around a half-mile (1 km) and extends to 88 ha (217 acres). The loch supports a healthy population of wild brown trout and wintering birds such as widgeon, mallard and swans. The water from here was once used to make whisky by the Pulteney Distillery in Wick.
