Loch Quoich

A reservoir located in the Lochaber district of Highland Council Area, Loch Quoich lies at the head of Glen Garry, 2 miles (3 km) west of the head of Loch Garry. Glen Quoich lies to the north containing a northern arm of the loch as well as the waters of the River Quoich. The reservoir is retained by a concrete-covered rock-filled embankment dam at its eastern end. This is the largest rockfill dam in Scotland: 320m (1049 feet) in length, 90m (295 feet) wide at its base and 38m (124 feet) high.

The loch gave its name to the Royal Navy frigate HMS Loch Quoich launched in 1944.
