“Lochindorb (from the Scottish Gaelic: Loch nan Doirb meaning "loch of the minnows") is a freshwater loch north of Grantown on Spey in the Highland council area of Scotland. On the island are the ruins of Lochindorb Castle, a former stronghold of the Clan Comyn and is built on what now is said to be an artificially created island. It is also a popular spot with fishers and birdwatchers, the latter of whom come to see the local black-throated divers and greylag geese. At the southeast edge of the loch there is a small patch of coniferous forest. The "Wolf's Lair": Lochindorb Castle at Lochindorb in Badenoch, stronghold of Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan. Lochindorb is home to an array of wildlife and is a popular fishing and birdwatching spot. The loch was traditionally a game loch with a large native brown trout population however there has been a dramatic decrease in numbers. Pike have been recorded in the loch for over 20 years and were illegally stocked. Pike have been used as an excuse for the demise of the trout, however anglers have been removing large numbers of trout due to no bag limit or permit system being in place.”
