This paper describes the environment, structure and internal physical conditions of the loch. The first section deals with structure. land use and climate of the catchment area. The structure of the loch itself is then considered together with a brief description of the sediments. The bulk of the paper is devoted to the effect of sun, rain and wind on the loch, e,g.• radiation and water temperature, water balance and hydraulic conditions. It ends with a summary of the influence of environmental factors on phytoplankton production and higher trophic levels.
