Loch Coruisk is an inland fresh-water loch, lying at the foot of the Black Cuillin. Loch Coruisk is reputed to be the home of a water horse.
Sir Walter Scott visited the loch in 1814 and described it vividly:
“Rarely human eye has known
A scene so stern as that dread lake,
With its dark ledge of barren stone…”
Lord Tennyson reported more prosaically:
“Loch Coruisk, said to be the wildest scene in the Highlands, I failed in seeing. After a fatiguing expedition over the roughest ground on a wet day we arrived at the banks of the loch, and made acquaintance with the extremest tiptoes of the hills, all else being thick wool-white fog.”
