Loch an Tòrr – Loch an Torra – Loch of the Hill.
Located to the west of Tobermory past the Mishnish Lochs on the B8073, Loch Torr is a man made freshwater loch which is dammed at its northern end.
The river Allt Coire Sgamadail runs into the loch from the east at the north end with the river Féith nan tri Chrioch entering from the southern end. The loch is bounded by both Forestry, Moorland and marsh.
Trout fishing is available on Loch Torr.
A viewing hide has recently been located at the south-western end of the loch where parking is also available.
The hide overlooks Loch Torr giving good views of the marshy southern area which attracts many species of bird life.
We have seen Golden Eagles over the hills to the east of the loch and there is always a good chance of seeing White Tailed Eagles in the area.
Signed cycling on the Forestry tracks is available together with a 10.25 km circular walking route.
