Trossachs Ellens Isle located in Loch Katrine, Scotland. The loch is eight miles in length, making it one of the largest lochs in the Trossachs, but it is only 500 feet deep. In one of the great engineering feats of the Victorian era the loch was enlarged, and a pipeline built from it to supply the city of Glasgow with water.
