Loch Tamanavay

(Loch Tamnabhaigh)

Located on the western coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Loch Tamanavay (Gael: Loch Tamnabhaigh) is a sea loch that lies 4 miles (7 km) south of the mountain of Mealisval. The loch provides safe anchorage for smaller craft, its mouth being constricted by the headland of Rubha Garbh and, controversially, mussel farming cages are also located here. The River Tamanavay empties into this loch at its head.
