Loch Muick is a 2-mile long freshwater loch in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It is fed from the west by the Allt an dubh Loch, which flows down from Dubh Loch. The outflow is the source of the River Muick. A hiking path around the loch exists and is accessible from a carpark at Spittal of Glen Muick, at the northeastern end of the loch. Many old beech trees can be found around the edge of the loch - remnants of a beech forest that once covered the area.
The Loch sits within the boundary of the Balmoral estate and the royal bothy Glas-allt Shiel which was built by Queen Victoria sits on its banks. The house sits in a small pine plantation and can be accessed via the footpath that runs around the Loch's perimeter.
