Lochnafoy: Where is The Loch filmed? - Filming locations for Loch Ness series

The new ITV drama The Loch takes us not only to the deep and mystical waters of the Loch Ness, but also to the stunning Highlands of Scotland. Everything seems fine on the surface of a little village on the shores of the lake. However, underneath there is a real monster threatening the the inhabitants of the community.

Heading up the cast of this six episodes production are Laura Fraser (The Missing, Breaking Bad), Siobhan Finneran (Happy Valley, Benidorm) and Don Gilet (EastEnders, Brief Encounters).

As it already happened with the village where Broadchurch was set, also the fictional town of Lochnafoy is an amalgam of several locations. We'll be updating this post as we get more information: Maybe you can help us to find the filming locations where The Loch was shot:
