Loch Lochy (Scotland 2010)

Loch Lochy (Scottish Gaelic, Loch Lòchaidh) is a large freshwater loch in Lochaber.
Located 16 kilometres southwest of Loch Ness along the Great Glen, the loch is over 15 kilometres long. The River Lochy flows from its southwestern end while the Caledonian Canal links its northeastern extent to Loch Oich.
The Battle of the Shirts was fought at its northern end near Laggan in July 1544, between Clan Donald and Clan Fraser.
