Loch Coruisk is a fresh water lock right in the heart of the horseshoe shaped Cuillin Mountains directly opposite Elgol. Elgol may be at the end of the road, but it is a gateway to Loch Coruisk via a short 20 minute boat trip from Elgol pier.
Coruisk is a mystical and very remote loch in the very heart of the Black Cuillins. Loch Coruisk is reputed to be the home of a water horse, or perhaps better known as "Kelpie", the Scots name given to a shape-shifting water spirit inhabiting the lochs and pools of Scotland.
In recent years Loch Coruisk has become renowned as one of the most romantic places for a Scottish wedding. Mary's Thatched Cottages has been extremely popular for wedding couples. The traditional thatched cottage is very cosy and is the perfect place for a honeymoon.
