Gunknowe Loch

(Gun Knowe Loch)

A shallow artificial water body at the centre of Tweedbank in the Scottish Borders, Gunknowe Loch (also Gun Knowe Loch) provides a picturesque focus for the village. There is a small wooded island in the loch, which provides a home for ducks and swans, the latter began breeding on the loch in 1992. Fishing was banned on the loch ten years later to protect birdlife from being killed by discarded fishing line. A nature trail around the loch was created by pupils at Tweedbank Primary School.
