The majestic St Marys Loch (5km long) is the source of the Yarrow water and is fed from the Megget water and reservoir further up in the northern hills. It is met at the western head with the Loch of the Lowes, a smaller but equally attractive loch.
It takes its name from the Church of St Mary which once stood on its others shores and the area is famous for the poet James Hogg, known as the Ettrick Shepherd.
