Lovely Auchintaple Loch is on a leg of the Cateran Trail between Forter Castle and the Kirkton of Glenisla. Strictly speaking it is not actually a loch as it is man-made but it sits in its surroundings so majestically that you would think it had been there forever. It is much loved by fishing folk and has a Victorian boat-house. Few places on the Cateran Trail are more beautiful.
