Bucinch or Buc-Innis (Scottish Gaelic: "Buck Island" or "Male Goat Island") is a small island in Loch Lomond, in west central Scotland.

The heavily wooded island lies due north of Inchcruin[3] and rises steeply from a rocky coastline[4] to 24m (78 feet)[5] in a central summit.[6]

Along with smaller neighbour, Ceardach, Bucinch was donated to the National Trust for Scotland by Col Charles L Spencer of Warmanbie, Dumfries, in 1943.[6][7] Although uninhabited for centuries, there are remains of a stone jetty.[4]
