Loch Skeen
Loch Skeen
The loch lies in a glaciated hanging valley in the Grey Mare's Tail Nature Reserve owned by the National Trust for Scotland. Vendace, one of Britain's rarest fresh water fish, which dates back to the Ice Age, are to be found in this loch. The blue-green fish was introduced to the loch in the nineties and it now has more vendace per hectare than its only remaining native site in Britain at Derwent Water in the Lake District.
