Loch Derculich is a freshwater loch in central highlands of Scotland, in Perth and Kinross.[1][2] Loch Tummel is located three miles to the north.[3]

Habitation[edit]

Evidence of Shieling huts in two groups are visible from oblique aerial photography, that consist of two groups in either side of a gully on the South of Loch Derculich. A trackway runs to the SW of the huts. What may be a hut-circle lies beside a more modern track to the north-east of the huts.[4]
