River Lochy drains 9 miles from Loch Lochy southwest into Loch Linnhe near to Inverlocy and Fort William on the west coast of Scotland. The river is very popular for salmon fishing (and, in the past, salmon poaching) and kayaking. During WWII 12 commandos drowned on the river at the Eas nan Long (Waterfall of the Ships) section of the river. On the way, the river passes by the ruins of Inverlochy Castle and was used to feed the moat around the castle.
For those wanting to paddle on the river, there are put-ins at Gairlochy on Loch Lochy, and behind the BP petrol station by the bridge to Corpach.
TRAVEL DIRECTIONS AND GETTING THERE
The B8004 runs along River Lochy from Gairlochy to Benavie, where it joins the A830 about 2.5 miles from Fort William.
