Loch Awe

From Openwaterpedia

Loch Awe (Scottish Gaelic: Loch Obha) is a large body of water in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. It has also given its name to a village on its banks, variously known as Loch Awe, or Lochawe. There are islands within the loch such as Innis Chonnell and Inishail. It is site of the 40-mile Three Lakes Challenge (or Loch, Lake, Llyn), an unprecedented 5-person relay with Sam Plum, Jason Betley, Helen Gibbs, Helen Liddle, and Debbie Taylor on 3-4 July 2015.
