Awe, Loch, situated in the centre of Argyllshire, Scotland, has a length of 25 miles, with a breadth varying from two and-a-half miles to half-a-mile, being the second in size of the Scottish lakes. It is fed by the Orchy, which drains part of the Moor of Rannoch, and its superfluous waters are discharged by the river Awe into Loch Etive. Many islands stud its surface, and on some of them are interesting ruins. The shores are steep and gloomily picturesque, especially in the pass of Brander, at the W. extremity, and the crest of Ben Cruachan overshadows its waters. It is a favourite resort of fishermen, being full of trout and salmon. The Campbell slogan, "It's a far cry to Lochawe," took its origin hence.
