Lochindorb (from the Scottish Gaelic: Loch nan Doirb meaning "loch of the minnows") is a freshwater loch north of Grantown on Spey in the Highland council area of Scotland. On the island are the ruins of Lochindorb Castle, a former stronghold of the Clan Comyn and is built on what now is said to be an artificially created island. It is also a popular spot with fishers and birdwatchers, the latter of whom come to see the local black-throated divers and greylag geese. At the southeast edge of the loch there is a small patch of coniferous forest.
Lochindorb Castle can only be reached by boat

Lochindorb is home to an array of wildlife and is a popular fishing and birdwatching spot. The loch was traditionally a game loch with a large native brown trout population however there has been a dramatic decrease in numbers. Pike have been recorded in the loch in recent years. European anglers have enriched the area bringing a vibrant angling culture, creating tangible economic and social benefits to the local economy and community.
