Loch Monar

Situated on the border between Inverness, Ross and Cromarty, and Skye and Lochalsh districts of Highland Council Area, Loch Monar to the south of the East and West Monar Forests. The loch has a length of 8 miles (13 km) and has been used as a reservoir since 1963. Its level is artificially raised by a dam at its eastern end. This is an example of an arch-dam, a type relatively rare in Britain. The ruins of Strathmore Lodge lie beneath the water.
