Loch Doon

Loch Doon is large loch and reservoir in hilly country in Ayrshlre at the head of the River Doon, five miles south ofDalmellington. Water from the loch travels through a tunnel into the River Ken watershed, forming part of the hydroelectric scheme. When the level of the loch was raised for the scheme, the remains of the early 14th century Loch Doon Castle, which formerly stood on an island in the loch, were moved to the lochside.
