History of the lochBy Gordon Douglas
Pronounced Doonagay, this is a typical hill loch situated about a mile from the bridge over the Sleoch burn at the Dalnawillan end of Loch More. It was rarely fished but had the reputation of holding some good fish. Its unpopularity was due to the hard slog over rough moor to the loch side. However with the advent of forestation, a fine forestry road has been laid from the turning at the bridge all the way to Altnabreac and further if you venture across the railway which passes within a short distance of the loch. DFFA secured a boat let on the loch a few years ago from the estate . The loch is now surrounded by trees which, of course, alters its character completely by providing more sheltered conditions as opposed to the wild exposed place it used to be.
