Loch Fada - FURTHER INFORMATION

Loch Fada - Skye visitor guide showing a virtual tour of 'Loch Fada' linked to an interactive map with local and travel information. 360° panoramas from Highland.

Loch Fada is a fresh water loch at the southern end of the Totternish Peninsula on Skye. It is joined by a narrow neck of water to Loch Leathan forming one of the Storr Lochs. Loch Fada is a Designated Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The road between Portree and Staffiin proceeds along the edge of the loch, below steep ridges of the hills to the west. There are a couple of self catering holiday cottages here. Just to the north of the loch is a picnic area popular for the small waterfall overlooking Loch Leathan.

Loch Fada gave it's name to HMS Loch Fada (K390), a loch class frigate built in 1943 which served during WWII and was finally scrapped in 1970 after serving in various theatres around the world.

Loch Fada is about 4 miles north of Portree and 12.7 miles south of Staffin on the A87.
