A sad tale lies behind the name of this loch. It translates to the Loch of Dugald’s daughter. The local girl fell victim to a dreaded Each Uisge (a water-horse) that had taken human form to woo her. Too late she noticed the water plants in his hair and realised his true identity. He snatched her back and dragged her into the loch, never to be seen again.
