Duntelchaig  Inverness Shire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Duntelchaig like this:

Dundelchack or Dun na Seilcheig, a loch on the mutual border of Daviot and Dores parishes, NE Inverness-shire, 8 ½ miles SSW of Inverness. Lying 702 feet above sea-level, it has an utmost length from SW to NE of 3 3/8 miles, whilst its breadth varies between 2 2/3 furlongs and 1 mile. ...

It sends off a rivulet eastward to Loch Clachan, and thence to the river Nairn. Trout and red char are plentiful, the former running up to 4 lbs., but neither rise very freely to the fly; and pike of from 3 to 20 lbs. may be taken by trolling.—Ord. Sur., shs. 73, 83, 1878-81.
