Loch Ericht

Loch Ericht: the road drops down to the lake

Loch Ericht is a beautiful remote lake at an elevation of 351m (1,151ft) above the sea level, located in the county of Perthshire, in Scotland.

Surrounded by mountains, on the border of the Highlands and Perth and Kinross, the road runs on the southern shores of the lake. It’s totally paved but very narrow so proceed cautiously and hope no other vehicles come from the other direction. Not recommended if you don't know how to reverse. Please drive slowly.

Starting at B846, on Bridge of Ericht, the road to the lake is 17.54km (10.9 miles) long. Due to the harsh winter conditions, the road can be impassable from the end of October through to the beginning of May each year. The drive is steep, hitting a 12% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
