Black Loch

A loch in W Central Dumfries and Galloway, Black Loch is located in plantation woodland between Craigdews Hill and Poultrybuie Hill, 7½ miles (12 km) northeast of Newton Stewart. Extending to 2.9 ha (7.2 acres) and providing a recreational fishery for brown trout, it drains into the Tonderghie Burn a short distance to the northeast. On its western shore is The Eye, a conical terracotta-tiled spire some 8m (26 feet) in height, which is an art installation by Colin Rose that was erected in 1997 as part of the Art in the Galloway Forest Park project.

There is another Black Loch 2¾ miles (4.5 km) to the northwest and yet another 11 miles (18 km) to the west.
