Full Description

Loch Meig
This part of the glen is comparatively narrow and has steep sides. Loch Meig was formed by the construction of the Meig Dam c1957. The present road traverses the south side of the loch along a strip of birch clad land. Sections of the former, now abandoned, road are very clear to see at a lower level, although much of it is underwater.
