Loch Ossian

Loch Ossian is a narrow freshwater loch in southern Inverness-shire, on the Corrour Estate, at the north-eastern edge of Rannoch Moor. It is about three miles long with its western corner a mile east of Corrour railway station. It is drained by the River Ossian, flowing north into Loch Guilbinn and ultimately to the River Spean at Moy.

Loch Ossian is remote from public roads, and the nearest access is from Corrour railway station. On its banks near the western end of the loch stands Loch Ossian youth hostel, which belongs to the Scottish Youth Hostels Association. The hostel was recently restored as an 'eco-hostel', boasting wind and solar power, and grey water and dry toilet systems. At the eastern end of the loch is Corrour Lodge.
