Corr, A-Choire, or Coir' an Fhearna, a loch of Farr parish, central Sutherland, 6 miles SE of Altnaharrow inn at the head of Loch Naver, from which lake it is screened by Benclibrick (3154 feet). Lying itself 570 feet above sea-level, it has an utmost length from SW to NE of 3¼ miles, whilst in width it varies between 21/3 and 3½ furlongs. At its head it communicates with Loch a Vellich, and from its foot sends off a stream to the river Naver. Its trout are large and plentiful.—Ord. Sur., sh. 106,1880.
