Detailed Description

Tannoch Loch provides an attractive setting for the early-20th-century housing development. The banks of the loch are private, with several large residential gardens backing onto the water. Tannoch Burn flows out of the loch and runs through Barloch Moor, a wooded area with some open grassy space. The woodland is semi-natural with some late-20th-century planting, and consists largely of mixed broadleaved trees.
