Loch Muick

Toggle location map

Loch Muick is a beautiful freshwater loch on the Balmoral Estate roughly 8km south of Braemar. The loch is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike due to its picturesque location and pleasant terrain.

On the western side of the loch you will find Glas-allt Shield - a hunting lodge built for Queen Victoria in 1868. This lodge became her retreat after the death of Prince Albert. It is also known as Widow's House.

Keep your eyes peeled as you will frequently spot red deer and other wildlife roaming across the hills.

There is a visitors centre en-route from the carpark to the loch.
