Loch Laggan is a freshwater loch situated east of Fort William, in Lochaber, Highland, Scotland. The A86 road from Spean Bridge to Kingussie follows along its north shore. Since 1934 Loch Laggan has been a reservoir, retained behind the Laggan Dam, forming part of the Lochaber hydro-electric scheme. At the other end of the loch is the hamlet of Kinloch Laggan.
The loch featured in the popular BBC series Monarch of the Glen as Loch Bogle, and the eastern end of the loch includes the largest freshwater beach in the UK.
See Cainnech of Aghaboe for the remains of St Kenneth's Church shown on OS maps.
Loch Laggan (mostly its castle) is also featured in the Temeraire series of novels, being used as a base to raise dragons, because of geothermal heat sources.
