Bruntis Loch

A lochan in the Kirroughtree Forest of Dumfries and Galloway, Bruntis Loch lies 2¼ miles (3.5 km) east of Newton Stewart and is connected to the Kirroughtree Visitor Centre, a half-mile (0.8 km) to the southeast, by a circular walking path. Bruntis Loch was created in the 18th C. by damming the Bruntis Burn to provide water for the nearby lead mines. Today it is noted for its colourful wildflowers in the Spring, together with bird-life and red squirrels.
