Photograph of the Loch an Eilein situated in the Rothiemurchus Forest in Aviemore, Scotland. The loch is glimpsed through trees and dense forest in the foreground that leads to the loch in the background.

The name 'Loch an Eilean' derives from the Gaelic, meaning the Loch of the island. There is a small island in the centre of the loch on which stands a 15th century castle.
