Excerpt from The Glasgow Naturalist, Vol. 4: The Journal of the Natural History Society of Glasgow (Including the Transactions and Proceedings of the Society, Third Series)

Castle Loch lies in a moorland district in the Parish of Mochrum and County of Wigtown. Extending to 287 acres, it is one of the largest of a group of lochs lying within two miles of Luce Bay to which it is connected by the Craignarget Burn. It has an average depth of ten feet, and, unlike the neighbouring loch of Mochrum, its waters have a peculiar muddy appearance, which is constant. On an island at the north-east corner stands the ruins of an old castle, from which the loch no doubt takes its name, and the remaining islets are, for the most part, mere rocks, showing but a few feet above the water. To the visitor from Glasgow it is easy of access by way of Dunragit and Kirkcowan, and can be done in one day. The district is a rich one for birds, which are carefully protected, without distinction of species, by order of the proprietor, the Marquis of Bute. The object of our visit was to study the Cormorant (Phalacrocorax carbo) in its summer quarters, and, if possible, to obtain photographs of its domestic economy. For either purpose it would be difficult to conceive a more ideal place.

The distribution of this species and its near relative, the Shag (Phalacrocorax graculus), in the Clyde Area, presents some interesting features.
