Great stuff Col. Would it be too much to ask for it to be split into Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England ?? An easy way to do it might be to do a spreadsheet sort on the first column Lake,Loch,Llyn and Lough (the Wales ones would need Llyn in the first column !) (y) ;)

Well, a large part of the idea was to include waters from all over the British Isles, so we can see the waters elsewhere in Britain that are similar in size to the waters we fish locally.

However, just for you...

(Note: Lake of Menteith in Scotland, Lake Vyrnwy in Wales and Sweethope Loughs in England 😜)

Much appreciated(y). And I am surprised to see Trawsfynydd bigger than Brenig - both of which I fish regularly !! (and I won't dare ask if you would list them in order from larger to smaller !!)

No but alphabetical (by country) would have been nice...

It is surprising how we see the sizes of waters. I thought Sletill was a little puddle but surprisingly it is bigger than Fada on South Uist. On the other hand some lochs on the totally featureless moors of Sutherland with nothing (trees, buildings or even a fence post) to scale them look bigger than they actually are to my eye.

BTW - in Post #61, Baddingsgill was wrongly listed as being in England. Now corrected to Scotland.

It is surprising how we see the sizes of waters. I thought Sletill was a little puddle but surprisingly it is bigger than Fada on South Uist. On the other hand some lochs on the totally featureless moors of Sutherland with nothing (trees, buildings or even a fence post) to scale them look bigger than they actually are to my eye.
Andy

The one I can't get my head round is that Loch Stack is sizes with the Lake of Menteith. It just felt nothing like 600 acres.

Sorry, I feel a bit of a c*** posting this link: https://eip.ceh.ac.uk/apps/lakes/index.html but does give some useful details in addition to the area of the lakes/lochs.

Oh well, that's me out of a job... 😜

Though I tried it on Badingsgill and it had never heard of it.

And it doesn't give areas in acres, and how do we know it is quoting the fishable area? ;)

But yes - very good addition - had no idea there was something like that out there! (y)

Where I want to be
Be wary of the mean depths quoted on that site, they are well off on all the Uist/Benbecula lochs I know. There is one that doesn't have three feet anywhere that is given as 5.8m!

Some are pretty accurate looking - West Ollay mean depth 0.7m max depth 1.4m but Bornish is given a mean depth of 5.7m and but there is nothing over 3m anywhere on Bornish.

Nice one Col, must've taken you ages.
Stenhouse res down the road from me comes in at 32 acres.
Surprised to see Dola is the same size, always thought it was just a wee puddle of a lochan.
I suppose it is next to Shin.

Just as a for example...

Rutland is given as 2995 acres. I measured what is fishable water (including bits that may be designated out of bounds to anglers). Got 2763 acres.

Shin is given on that site as 8137 acres. I measured it at 7538, but here it given as 5570! As we've been saying, it does vary a lot, depending on the level!
