Loch Roag

(Loch Ròg)

A large sealoch littered with islands on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Loch Roag (Gael: Loch Rog) is divided by Great Bernera into West Loch Roag and East Loch Roag. The name Loch Roag is itself applied to two distinct bodies of water; the first lies to the southwest of Great Bernera and narrows to form Little Loch Roag (Gael: Loch Rog Beag), the other lies to the south and west of Eilean Kearstay, to the southeast of Great Bernera, at the mouth of Loch Kinhoulavig. These are separated by the Great Bernera Bridge and another arm of the loch referred to as Loch Barraglom.
