Dance Information

Loch Doon is a body of water, in Carrick, Scotland. The River Doon issue from its northern end, while the loch itself receives waters from Loch Enoch in the Galloway Hills via Eglin Lane.

In the 13th century, it was a site of a castle owned by the Earls of Carrick. The castle was destroyed in the 16th century by King James V as part of a general policy of reducing the power of the barons.
