Loch Trool is a narrow, freshwater loch in Galloway, in the Southern Uplands in south-west Scotland. It lies in an elevated position in Glen Trool in the Galloway Forest Park and is approximately 8 mi (13 km) north of the town of Newton Stewart. The loch is the source of the Water of Trool which flows to the Water of Minnoch and the River Cree. The loch and its surroundings are considered an area of natural beauty and there is a scenic footpath around its perimeter.
Loch Trool is also reported to be the darkest place in the UK at night.
